Jhankham's story

Jhankham has lived a long and difficult life. For several generations, her family worked side-by-side in back-breaking field labor for many years. Traditionally, older women leave the fields to work in the home, making meals and clothing. With the advent of prepared foods and store-bought clothing, grandmothers feel the need to make themselves useful and continue to work in the fields.

At the remarkable age of 73, Jhankham learned to weave hammocks and has felt a renewed energy and excitement! She is overjoyed to find a new financial opportunity after worrying about her family. She says that this loan will help her achieve financial stability in her old age, and more importantly help her support her extended family and help them through hardships.
