"A strong woman is a woman determined to do something others are determined not be done." - Marge PiercyShe is strong, she is independent, she is a columnist on women empowerment for the local newspaper and she has been running a successful entrepreneurial venture for the past decade. We give you superwoman - Sharadaben! She has been able to construct a house for her family, provide proper education to her sons and runs her household with ease.
Sharadaben visits Surat every fortnight to replenish her stocks of sarees and sells them at prices ranging from Rs.200 to Rs.700. Though, she has been selling sarees for almost 10 years now, she started acquiring loans only in the last four. This time around, she took a loan from Milaap of Rs.20,000. Her growth in terms of monthly savings have increased from Rs.5000 to Rs.8000 over the years.
On her experience with loans, Sharadaben says, "If it weren't for my relationship with Prayas (and now with Milaap), I wouldn't have been able to achieve what I have."
There are several such women entrepreneurs who dream of soaring high but are held back due to financial constraints. You can help them accomplish their dreams.
