Thusur Jlg - 009 Group's story

Mariyayee is the leader of the Thusur JLG - 009 group. Janagi, Dhanalaxmi, Mallika and Lakshmi are the other members of the group. Mariyayee is 28 years old and lives with her family in Tamil Nadu. She earns her daily wages by doing manual labour on agricultural fields.

She wants to supplement her income and ensure there is a more steady source of income to support her family. To this end, she underwent training from Gramalaya Microfin Foundation in millet growing. Now, she, along with the other members in the group is seeking a loan to start a business from home. She is confident of earning a higher income.

Mariyayee and Lakshmi want to start their millet business while the other members will start home-based businesses in making mixed spice powders. The income from the business will help them boost their income and save more in the long run for their children's education, and for any emergencies that may arise.
