Kula and her eleven member household had struggled to make ends meet for years. Only employed seasonally and facing high medical expenses, the family was forced to sell their only property. Kula recognized the opportunity for change in a loan from Cashpor. She used her first loan of Rs.6000 (US$130) to purchase a cow to sell milk, and is now running a profitable business that has grown rapidly since that first loan. After paying back four loans totaling Rs.50,000 (US$1100), she makes more than Rs.1,000 (US$22)in sales daily. Kula has not only built a lucrative business, but a new home for her family on a plot of land they recently purchased.
