Gunadei a married lady of 28. She is a resident of a rural village named Badi in the Nuapada district of Odisha, India. She belongs to a Schedule caste family. The lady sitting with her hand raised in the photograph is Gunadei. She resides with her husband and two sons who are six and nine years old. Her two children are studying in fourth and third standard in a private school. Gunadei herself has been running a fancy store with ladies fancy items and cosmetics in her house for the last eight years. Her husband works for a private company. Presently, she and her husband earn a monthly income of 10,000 INR. This is not at all sufficient for her to manage the household expenses, business investments and educational expenses of her children.

Gunadei has a dream of giving a better education to her children. So she and her husband decided to admit their elder son in a private school. But scarcity of money was a problem for her. When Mahashakti Foundation started the education loans, Gunadei applied and took a loan of 10,000 INR for the educational expenses of her elder son who is there with her in the photograph. With this loan, she will pay the admission fee, tuition fee and arrange study materials like books etc. This will encourage her son as well as Gunadei to take a future course of action. She is very hopeful that she will be able to respectfully stand her children in the society.
