Jay Matadi Group's story

Jay Matadi, a Joint Liability Group, was formed in the year 2010 by four active women of Bolangir town of Bolangir district in Odisha, India with a purpose to take loans from Mahashakti Foundation to enhance their business to add some extra income to their families. Anandini is one of the members of this group, standing on the extreme left with raised hand. She is a very active and confident lady. She is 33 years of old and lives with her husband and two children who are continuing their primary education.

Anandini has been running a fast food center in Bolangir town with the help of her husband for last 20 years. Her fast food center starts at 3.00 pm and continues up to 9.00 pm where mainly she sells 'chart' (a fast food item). Her preparation is very popular in the town. To help her in the business she has engaged three workers. Anandini earns a monthly income of 7000 INR.

This is the 2nd loan from Mahashakti Foundation and Anandini wants to purchase stock of oil, dough, potatoes, gram (lentils) etc. to save money from frequent transporting and price hikes due to rate fluctuation.

Anandini hopes to add sweet items along with her present business. She is also very much interested to give better education to her children. The other three members of the group are Nirupama, Usha and Lilirani who are running a ladies' fancy item center, tailoring and coaching center, and a betel nut center respectively. Anandini has been heading the group from the beginning with sincerity and good leadership.
