A loan of $750 helped to pay for an auto-rickshaw for transporting fish.


Arjuna's story

Arjuna is a 32-year-old man from the Khurda District of Odisha, India. He has a fish selling business with 11 years of experience. He lives with his two brothers and their parents. His monthly income is 8,000 Indian rupees (INR).

Arjuna is requesting a loan of 40,000 INR to purchase a secondhand auto-rickshaw for transporting the fish he purchases from fishermen to the many village markets in Khurda. Combining the loan with his own savings, he hopes to be able to make this investment for his business. An auto-rickshaw (a three-wheeled vehicle) is one of the most common and essential modes of transportation in India. An auto-rickshaw will help Arjuna transport his fish to more local markets quickly and easily and increase his profit.
