How a microloan helped this woman kick off her weaving business

Annapurna Finance Pvt. Ltd. is a microfinance institution from India that has been a partner of the GLS AI – Microfinance Fund since 2018. The institution offers tailor-made financing solutions to its clients, particularly women, catering to their specific needs.

One of these clients is Pratima Sahoo, who took a loan from Annapurna Finance for her weaving work. The loan allowed her to purchase her own machine, which would not have been possible with family savings alone.
