Ann Radhamohan Self Help Group's story

"Ann Radhamohan" is a women's self help group with 12 members. The members reside in the village of Jaripada in Odisha, India. The lady standing in the middle of the photograph with a register is Babi.

Babi is the president of the group. Babi, 41, and her husband Surendra, 45, have two children who are currently in school. For five years, this husband and wife have worked as a team selling fresh and dried fish in the market. Surendra goes to the large Chilika Lake to fish and brings home the hard-earned products of his labor, while Babi prepares dried fish to sell in the local market.

They hope to get a loan to purchase fishing net and a storage box to store and transport the fish. With the ability to fish and store larger quantities of fish, they hope to increase their profit.
