A loan of $10,000 helped to purchase equipment for their new restaurant.

Dinesh's story

Dinesh and his wife, Nidhi, are originally from India and moved to the United States 10 years ago.

In 2009, they opened their own business, Indigo, to prepare and sell their homemade Indian food. They currently sell their Indian food at two farmers markets in Washington, DC. Dinesh and his wife have gained a strong following at the farmer’s markets and their customers have requested that the couple establish their own brick and mortar restaurant. The couple found a location in Washington, D.C., and recently signed a lease to open their first Indian restaurant. The restaurant is scheduled to open this summer.

The couple is requesting a $10,000 to purchase equipment such as a range, a refrigerator, a steam table, as well signage for the front of the restaurant.

Dinesh and Nidhi have three children and in the future they plan to open additional Indian restaurants in the Washington, D.C. area.
