She is a mother of four children, two of whom are studying in school while the other two small children stay in home. Her husband is in the catering business. His earns more during weddings and festival seasons. Arti is in the bari food business.  Bari is the food item which is made of pulses, rice, peas, etc. This food item is very popular in her locality. She prepares and sells it. She earns around 200 INR per day, but still it is not enough to maintain the family and to meet her children's education expenses. Arti is requesting a loan to buy raw food items to make bari. She hopes this loan will help her increase her family income.   The other members are also seeking loan to expand their livelihoods.
