Padma Devi funded her son's school fees and did more. With a Milaap loan.

S Padma Devi was a housewife, who’s life changed drastically after she took the saree fabric painting course. She employs one other person now, and her monthly income has gone up by Rs. 1,500 approximately. With this increase, she has funded both her sons’ school fees – Rs. 1000 and Rs. 750 respectively. She also bought them sports equipment worth Rs. 2000.

She constructed a new toilet 2 months ago, plans to construct a kitchen and convert her house from tiled to concrete. When I asked her how she felt now that she is working, she told me that her business has made her happy and proud, and she has made many friends. She wishes to see her eldest son in police training school and wants to be a successful entrepreneur one day.
