Being involved in Grameen for me personally means I have the peace of mind that I have a guaranteed source of regular cash injection into my business. Once the old loan is paid off I can always get another one, just knowing that they are there gives me hope that the business will continue and stay strong.
I have made new friends plus given so many tips and ideas by Didi (the Grameen Community Lending Officer) to improve my business.
Above all she has brought me into contact with quite a few people that have definitely helped my business in various ways. I thought I was just taking out a loan I never anticipated all these other add ons, benefits and friendships. It's really great.
