Sheela's story

Sheela is a 29-year-old differently-able lady living with her parents in the village of Balipatna in Odisha, India. She is engaged in the activity of making incense sticks, and she sells these sticks directly to the shopkeepers in the market. She started this business four years back when her family's economic condition was not good and her father was overburdened with family responsibility.

She has a plan to expand her business of making incense sticks by making them in large quantity and supplying them to the big dealers. She also wants to give training in making incense sticks to the girls of her village to make them self-employed.

She has requested a loan amount of 30,000 INR for purchasing glue, sticks, raw materials for covering the sticks, fragrance, wrapping bags, etc. She has a dream of running a training school for making incense sticks and supporting her father economically.
