When her application for a student loan was turned down by the Central Bank of India, Bibi Sara from Mandya, over 100km from Bengaluru, didn't know how to arrange funds for an MBA. She wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking help to get her education loan sanctioned. The PMO promptly responded to her plea and the 21-year old girl was granted the loan under the central government's "Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao" scheme.
