Bastren Group's story

This group was formed in the year 2015 at Khaliakani village, of Bolangir district, Odisha, India. There are nine active, self-dependent women, with the objective of developing their existing businesses as well as their livelihoods. All the members of the concerned group have their own professions and businesses.

Asha is one of them who has taken a great role in her development and in the group members' source of revenue improvement. She is standing second from right with raised hand in the photo. She is about 44 years old and living with her husband and only son of 24 years.

The whole family has engaged in a tea and tiffin shop for the last six years. Through the concerned business, she earns a monthly income of 7,900 INR.

Asha planned to improve the business in the course of loan, which resulted in taking the loan from Mahashakti. She will purchase necessary utensils, chairs, a gas stove, rice, wheat, oil, etc. She hopes to get more and more profit from her business expansion and save money for her future needs.

The other eight members of her group are also smart at their professions and also actively engaged with different businesses like vegetable vending, general store, animal trading, betel shop, tailoring, and carpentry. With this loan, they all hope to heighten their livelihoods.
