Manju Pradhan

Fancy items and Cosmetics shop
The shop that cares
32 years old
Sector 4, J P Colony, Naya Kheda, Jaipur

Manju Pradhan’s husband did not have a fixed income and there were plenty of stomachs to feed in the family. She bought cosmetics and fancy items with the first loan she availed from Arth, and began selling from her own home.  4 loans and 5 years later, she has her own big shop and earns about INR 10-12000 every month. When her husband or she are not around, other family members take care of the shop.

The Covid-19 induced lockdown was very difficult for her, but she is glad that Arth officers were very kind and helped her sail through difficult times. She intends to make her shop bigger with more loans from Arth.
