About Kasturi Dinesh Pillay
Kasturi is an epitome of a strong woman who has persevered through the many challenges of life. She single handedly raised her two children and educated them in English medium schools, giving them access to better opportunities than she had. For the last 4 years she has been working in the cleaning and maintenance team at a Clover Builder's property in Pune. Not only is she respected for her work ethics but is also loved for the person she is. Kasturi had previously taken a loan from the bank for her daughter's wedding. With the support of her son, she used to make payments of Rs. 10,500 every month to repay this loan. But due to the unfavourable conditions caused by the pandemic, Kasturi's son lost his job and this has hampered their ability to comfortably repay the loan. In the last three months, she had to resort to borrowing money with interest from neighbours and relatives so as to make timely repayments to the bank. This interest free loan will help Kasturi close off her existing loan with the bank and prevent her from falling prey to a vicious debt cycle.
She wants to go back to living her life with dignity and without any fear.
