Harikala makes green mango pickles. Thanks to Mercy Corps, she received a loan to purchase spices, oils, tools and containers. She repaid that loan and took out a second one to expand her business.
Now she earns enough to cover her daily needs and business expenses, make her monthly loan payment — and hire an assistant. "Now I know," she said, "as a woman, I can be a business owner and provide meals for my family."
