Update from Lakshmi. Better Nutrition and Savings for a Rainy Day

Lakshmi used her loan from Milaap to learn the saree fabric painting business. This has helped her monthly income to expand by Rs. 3000, which she finds greatly beneficial. Since she launched her business, she was able to pay the hospital bills, amounting to Rs.1500, of her young son when he fell ill. She was also able to buy a birthday present for her son and her family is able to afford mutton twice a week now, rather than just once.

She wishes for her son to be able to pursue higher studies and get a good job. When I asked her about how this made her feel, she said that she is very happy that she is employed and can earn a steady income. She told me that she has big dreams for the future - she wants to start a shop of her own one day and be a successful store owner.
