Kannanur Jlg - 026 Group's story

Kokila earns her daily wage by labouring in the agricultural fields. She is married and a mother of two children. She lives with her family in a village in Tiruchirappalli district of Tamil Nadu. The income from her current work is proving insufficient to meet her household expenses. The work is also seasonal in nature. She is worried that if she does not add a more steady source of income, she will not be able to save enough for her children’s education.

Thus she underwent training in doing semi-precious stone work on sarees under Gramalaya Microfin Foundation. She now wants to start her business butt lacks the funds to do so. Thus, she seeks a loan. Kokila formed a group with women who come from similar backgrounds and are being held back due to the shortage of funds. The loan will be used to start their respective businesses. Your loan will help these women boost their income and save for future needs.
