Kabita's story

Kabita is a 27-year-old divorced woman living with her sister, brother-in-law and her two-year-old son. After her divorce from her husband, she came back to her sister's house and started living with her sister's family, but she felt like a burden on her sister's family, as her sister was already responsible for her one son and two daughters. So she planned to help her sister financially and started a small tailoring shop with her one sewing machine. She took orders from her customers for stitching plastic bags and whenever she had time, she got involved in a cane craft. She makes mirror stands, tools, chairs etc. from cane. She says that the cane craft is more profitable than tailoring. Because of her limited financial condition, she is not able to develop her cane craft business. She earns 3,000 INR per month from this activity, which is not sufficient for her family. She plans to purchase the raw materials (cane, coloring, nails, etc.) and appoint two workers for her business.

She has requested a loan of 30,000 INR for purchasing raw materials (cane, coloring, nails, etc.) and appointing two workers for her business to help her to produce more.

She wants to save some money for her sons’ future and send her son to a good school.
