Palaniammal lives in a small village in Tamil Nadu with her two young daughters. That locality is quite impoverished. When I spoke to Palaniammal about how she used her loan, she immediately told me about her goat-rearing business. She bought two goats with the loan that she got. Now, she is able to live sustainability with the income that the goats generate, and she is very happy.
Palaniammal's business is now expanding in her village. What made this happen?
