I went to meet Manju, a member of Maa Tarini JLG (Joint Liability Group) in Bhuvaneshwar, on 31st of October, 2014. She lives in Rental colony of Behrera Basti with her husband and a daughter. Her husband is an auto rickshaw driver. Her family income is around Rs 15000 per month. Manju had taken a loan of Rs 15,000 almost six months back from Milaap for funding the education of her daughter Pratima. The loan amount was used for paying the various educational expenses such as admission fees, tuition fees and other related expenses. The motivation for Manju to take Milaap loan is to assist her husband carrying the burden of family expenses. She had a very good experience with Milaap and the field partner, Mahashakti Foundation and is happy that she was able to get a loan in time to help her with her financial needs, and ensure that her daughter's education could continue.
