Tailoring | Madhya Pradesh
Laxmi Jatav takes great pride in the fact that her eldest son will graduate from university in two years' time. One of the reasons this happened was because Laxmi started her own vegetable vending business in order to ensure that none of her children would be deprived of an education. Before she borrowed 8000 from Rang De to start this business, Laxmi often feared that her children would have to drop out of school as her husband’s monthly income of 3000 would be insufficient as their education progressed. Now, thanks to her booming business, she no longer faces that predicament. To keep improving her business Laxmi borrowed another 12000 with which she bought a standard weighing scale. Now she even travels to the main market which is farther away to bring a greater variety of vegetables to her village. With her business acumen and remarkable hardwork, Laxmi managed to turn her life around!
Rang De had given a loan to Laxmi Jatav earlier to start her business as a vegetable vendor. She has been able to make a reasonable amount of profit from this business by selling vegetables door to door. She also proved to be a reliable borrower by repaying the loan taken, in time. She is very hardworking and when she has finished her rounds of selling vegetables, she adds to her income by working as a maid in some houses. Her husband is a labourer and the total family income is just enough to meet the needs of the whole family which includes their two sons and daughter. The children are studying 1st year college, 10th std and 12th std respectively. To meet their growing education expenses, Laxmi wants to increase her earnings. With just 2 other vegetable vendors in her locality, she wants to increase her supply of vegetables by stocking more and thus catering to a greater demand. She also wants to purchase a weighing scale. A sum of Rs.12000/- is required for this and she hopes that Rang De would support her this time too.
