Jagabalia Self Help Group's story

In 2006, 13 women from a village stepped out and formed a group named Jagabalia Self Help Group in Odisha. They help each other, share their problems and solve them together. They are celebrating their festivals together in their village.

Namita, leader of the group, has one cow. The lady standing fourth from the left in the photo wearing a red and black colored sari is Namita. She wants to purchase one new cow so that she can sell the milk in large amounts. She provides vaccine and fodder to them when it's required. She sells the milk in her village with the help of her husband. Every morning, she takes the cow to graze in the fields and returns by noon. Then she cooks for her family. She resumes taking care of her cow by feeding it at home. Her husband assists her in selling the milk and maintaining the cow. In this way, she is earning to control her cash flow, which is not sufficient to manage her daily activities.

She wants to enlarge her business, so she wants to purchase one more cow. In this way, she can earn a good amount after all the expenditure of her business.

She has requested a loan of 195,000 INR for her group so that they can earn more and control their family's cash flow.

In this group: Pragati, Smita, Rebati, Namita, Soudamini, Priyadarshini, Sasmita, Kunia, Khulana, Mita, Sumitra, Smrutirekha, Kamali
