A loan of $475 helped to pay for purchasing a new sewing machine and fabrics for her tailoring shop.

Santilata's story

Santilata is a 25-year-old widow living with her parents and a child. She has 3 years' experience in the tailoring business. After her husband’s death she opened a tailoring shop at her house and started earning her livelihood and supporting her family. She has one sewing machine currently with which she stitches clothing for the village people.

She says there is an opportunity for the growth of her business as her shop is the only tailoring shop in the village. But due to lack of funds she is not able to expand her business. She requires a loan amount of 25,000 INR for purchasing an additional sewing machine and fabrics to meet the demand and make her customers happy.

She hopes to give her child a good education and intends to expand her workplace as much as she can so that she can train some girls from her village and hire them to help create a living for them as well.
