It was a pleasurable meet with Sitarani, a beneficiary of Milaap education loan on 17th January, 2015. Jayanti live in Mahavir Basti of Baramunda suburban area in Bhubaneshwar. The woman sitting on the right in the picture is Sitarani. She has been doing tailoring work for making a living. Almost 10 months back, Sitarani had taken education loan from Milaap for funding the education of her daughter Sasmita. Sasmita is studying in class 12th at a nearby intermediate college. The loan funding was used for paying the college admission fees and tuition fees. The Milaap funding had helped her enrolling her son in school otherwise she would have had to discontinue her son’s education due to financial constrictions. She had a good experience in dealing with the Milaap and its field partner and expressed hope that in future she would be able to avail the loans of larger amounts considering her timely repayment record.
