Narayan's story

Narayan is a 25-year-old physically challenged person living with his family in a small village of Odisha, India. His family consists of his wife and his one daughter, age three. His wife is a homemaker. He is the only earning person in his family. To manage his family, he started a general store at the village market, which is a half kilometer from his home. Whatever he earns from this activity is used for consumption purpose and is not sufficient for them to live happily and afford all necessities of life. He sells packaged items like biscuits, cake, wafers, chocolates, betel etc. in his shop. He goes to market to purchase the items for his shop very frequently. But due to the lack of funds, he is not able to meet the growing demand of the customers and compete with his competitors. He has requested a loan of 30,000 INR to purchase stock of what he sells in bulk and to purchase grocery items like rice, lentils, cooking oil, salt, sugar, spices and noodles etc. for his general store so that he can meet the market demand and compete with his competitor. He hopes to enlarge his business and provide good education to his daughter.
