Suddenly she came to know about VFS from one of her neighbors’ and came to our Kaliyaganj branch and joined a JLG named Mona; which was promoted by VFS. Initially she took a loan of Rs 8000/- to improve her business. Now her business has improved, she has taken the 5th cycle loan of Rs 30000/- from VFS and has decorated a part of her husband’s shop for her business.

Thus the income of the family has growing day by day. At present they have repaired their home and has bought many durable goods for the family.
