One of them is Gita who was selected as their president. Gita is a 22-year-old lady living with her husband and her three children. The lady sitting in the middle wearing a white saree is Gita. Her husband works as a labourer in a factory situated near her village.
She runs a variety shop to help her husband financially. She sells betel, grains, lentils, spices, biscuits, soap, detergent, hair oil, etc. in her shop. She has developed a very good relationship with her customers in the village. She likes the fact that she can cater to the needs of the people in her village. She has a plan to make her shop bigger and keep multiple things in her shop to meet her customers' demands. She also wants to purchase items for her shop in bulk, directly from the wholesalers. For this she has requested a loan to purchase items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, soft drinks, wheat flour, rice and other household consumables.
Gita, along with her group members, has requested a loan amount of 130,000 INR.
