little by little, bit by bit.
One step, one day,
one person at a time.
without bias, without exceptions,
without filters, without questions.
Believe in the human potential.
Go higher, further, wider than convention.
not just for a handful,
but also for the small,
the, often ignored.
not just for city folks,
for every village, small town, suburb.
Take it to the remotest possible place,
from north to south, coast to coast.
It is the only way
and there is a long way to go.
When we move forward together,
we truly grow.
Prema’s life dramatically changed six years ago when her husband, the sole bread earner of the house passed away. With 4 members to support Prema had no option but to start working as a daily labor near her village in Kesavapuram in Tamil Nadu. However not having a steady income and one that she could grow, worried her constantly especially for her children. When a group of women from her village decided to access a microfinance loan from Inditrade, Prema decided to join them. With a loan of ₹30,000 Prema now runs a saree business from her residence earning approximately ₹1,000 — ₹1500 per week. Today Prema is confident of growing her business further and fulfilling her children’s dreams. She smiles on her journey from house wife to an entrepreneur. Support from ladies from her micro finance group and guidance from Inditrade have added to her confidence of ensuring a safe and secure future for herself and her family.
Laxmi and her husband Hanumantu run a small yet successful tiffin centre in Gharkul near Sholapu in Maharashtra. They wanted to expand their business by adding a sweets stall within their existing premises. That is when they heard about Inditrade from their relatives and approached us for a loan of ₹30,000. Laxmi and Hanumantu have now doubled their daily income from ₹500 to ₹1,000. They are next planning to set up chat stall in the near future.
Yashoda lived the life of a happy housewife with her husband and three children. However seeing her husband’s income and the rising household expenses, Yashoda started thinking of ways in which she could support her husband by supplementing his income while still taking care of her house and her children. One idea that struck her was to open a small provisional store at her residence. Since she knew more of the people around her, she knew what would sell. At the same time she would be able to take care of her responsibilities at home. All she needed was some financial support. That is when she heard about Inditrade and approached us for a loan. With a loan of ₹30,000 today Yashoda does an average business of ₹500 to ₹1000 per day earning revenue of ₹300 to ₹800 from it. Her husband and children also help her manage the store. Both Yashoda and her husband wanted to send their children to good schools and are now confident about seeing their dream come true.
