Very inspirational story to share today - this applicant is both deaf and mute. He cycles between various housing societies in Bhavnagar, Gujarat where he sells locally made food items. His wife, also deaf and mute, works as a machine operator at a small manufacturing unit. Together, they earn an income of around Rs. 15,000 per month.
They currently live in the applicant's parental property with their two children. Soot stained walls and cramped spaces prompted the applicant to finally book a flat in an affordable housing project. Out of the 1 BHK flat cost of Rs. 3.25 lakh, the applicant put in a down payment of Rs. 1.08 lakh from his savings, borrowing the remaining amount from MHFC.
