Durgati Group's story

Durgati Group formed in the year 2015 at Karanpita village of Kalahandi district, Odisha, India. There are 10 active, self-dependent women with an objective for developing their existing businesses, as well as their livelihood. All the members of the concerned group have their own professions and businesses. Jharana is one of them who has taken a great role for her development and for the group members' source of revenue improvement. She is sitting in the front line of all the group members with her hand raised in the photo. She is about 25 years old and living with her small family consisting of her husband and two children. Both wife and husband are engaged with a clothing shop at their own village, Karanpita, since the last 10 years. Through the concerned business, the monthly income of the family is 10,000 INR. In Jharana’s opinion, this amount is not at all sufficient to maintain her family, and hence, there are almost zero surpluses at the end of the month. She planned to improve her business with more investment, but the availability of funds is the main concern. So as a result, Jharana has applied for a loan for her group and got approved by Mahashakti. From this loan, she will purchase some modern clothing items as per the demand of the customers from the wholesale market. She hopes to get more and more profit from her business expansion and save money for the construction of her own house and to provide a high-class education to her children. The other nine members of her group are also smart at their professions and are also actively engaged with different businesses like vegetable vending, a milk business, a rice business, tailoring, a popped rice business, a paddy business, a general store and a transport business. With this loan, they hope to heighten their livelihoods.
