Dasabhuja Shg Group's story

Ahalya is a 24-year-old lady currently engaged in vegetable cultivation and vegetable selling. She cultivates and sells vegetables such as potatoes, tomatoes, ladyfingers (okra), bitter gourds, bottle gourds, cabbage etc. From this activity, she is able to make 3,000 INR per month. Along with 14 other women from her village, she created a Self Help group called "Dasabhuja SHG", and Ahalya is the president of this group. In the picture, the lady seated with her hand raised is Ahalya. The group is made up of members having a purpose to help and support each other in their business activities and in their personal lives. All the group members are engaged in different activities to make some money for their household expenses. Ahalya lives with her parents-in-law, husband and her four children who are in school. Her husband was a farmer; currently he is not able to work as he met with an accident over one year ago and lost his memory and vision. Now Ahalya has to take on all the family's responsibilities. Ahalya needs more income to take care of her family, especially her husband. Ahalya, along with her group members, has requested a loan of 300,000 INR. Ahalya will use her portion to purchase standard quality seeds, fertilizers and pesticides for her vegetable cultivation. She is really very thankful to Kiva for this opportunity.
