A loan of $150 helped to buy grocery items to sell in her shop.


Minati's story

Minati, age 37, is a courageous lady from the village of Maynaguri with one son. She lost her husband in an accident. Minati studied up to class VIII (grade 8). She sends her son to school. She wants her son to lead a very successful life with a good education.

It was difficult for Minati to manage the minimum expenses of the day-to-day livelihood of her family and son. Then she decided to start her own grocery shop, but due to lack of funds, it was very difficult for her to continue this business. She does not have sufficient stock in her grocery shop. Then she heard about BJS and decided to take a loan to purchase various groceries for her grocery shop. In her locality, the demand for her groceries is very high as her shop is the only one there.

In the future, she dreams of extending her business and giving a good education to her son.

The small loan has brought a significant positive change in her life and lifted her family out of extreme poverty. She has proved that it is not that difficult to see the light by overcoming the hurdles if financial assistance is added to one’s industry.
