Mrs. Mukta’s “CORN & CORN”

It’s a journey of Mukta Sahoo (49) from a house wife to a successful business woman. She lived at Barmunda ,Bhubaneswar with her family. She has two daughter and a son. She with her husband started their business as a vegetable seller. From the wholesale market they bought the vegetables and sell those in the market. They had a tiny stall in the vegetable market of Bhubaneswar. Due to less capital they were selling less vegetables and earning a minimum profit.

In the year 2015, she became a client to us and took a loan of Rs. 14,000 at first. She invested the money at her shop. She purchased vegetables at a bulk amount & could be able get a good return. Her sell increases day by day. She turned the stall to a small vegetable shop at the no.4 vegetable market at Bhubaneswar. Again this year she took a loan of Rs. 20,000 and switch a step ahead to a snacks stall with her son where she availed sandwich, sweet corn, momos, chuski. These iteams are hugely sale at BBSR market and within two to three months she got a good return. She is making a profit of Rs.500 to Rs. 600 per day. Now her husband is completely looking after their vegetable shop and Mrs. Mukta and her son is focusing on the snacks stall named “Corn & Corn”.
Before two years the family earned RS. 4,000 to Rs. 5,000 and could hardly satisfied their basic needs .Now a days their total income is nearly Rs.20,000 per month. Their standard of living increases and Mrs. Mukta is highly satisfied with MSF lending facilities .Now she can save something for her daughter’s marriage. Very soon she intended to convert her stall to a small shop at the main market of BBSR and will avail more iteams like Pizza, Burger, Pettis, Ice cream, coffee etc. To make her plan success she is expecting a loan of Rs. 1 lakh from us in the coming years.
Mahashakti Foundation wishes Mrs. Sahoo for her success.
