Moti’s Bright Future

Moti’s family has faced a lot of challenges over the years. Her husband went to a gulf country to earn money but had to return within a month because of illness.

Moti started a small grocery shop but wasn’t able to earn much. She was unable to recover outstanding credit from some of her customers. Because of her increasing debt and inability to pay her bills, she was ready to close down her business.

One day, a loans officer from the My Business My Freedom Microfinance Project invited her to come along to a local microfinance women’s group meeting. After two hours of orientation on financial management, she was encouraged that she also can do something to support her family.

This young woman was provided with a loan through the My Business My Freedom Program to continue her business. The tips and business management training also helped her significantly. She is now slowly recovering her previous debts and has added more items in her shop. Her monthly sales are steadily increasing and she is keeping on top of her loan repayments.

Moti is thankful that the My Business My Freedom Microfinance Program is empowering her to be a small business entrepreneur.

This amazing program is currently empowering 147 women with small microloans and business skills so they can become self-sustainable and independent women.

Microfinance is keeping my kids in school

Mina was married at the age of 15. Now, at 32, her and her husband have a daughter and two sons. She was from a poor farming family. She tells us her story. “I started a ‘Chatpat’ (a quick sour, chilly snack) selling business with an investment of about Rs. 2,000 (US$17) as that’s all my family could afford. I was able to earn around Rs. 1,000 (US$8) daily and although this was not much, it boosted my confidence. That was 6 years ago. I wanted to grow my business but I wasn’t able to get a loan."
