Shree Shree Hariharadev Self Help Group's story

Shree Shree Hariharadev Self Help Group (SHG) has 11 members who are all from the same neighbourhood. The lady sitting third from the left in the photo is Rasmita, who is the leader of the group. Rasmita is 25 years old and married to a fisherman from Balugaon village in Odisha, India. Rasmita lives with her in-laws and her husband takes care of all the household expenses. She helps her husband sell fish. Her husband goes to the lake every morning to fish and she sells those fish in the market as fresh fish and keeps some of them to dry (Drying the fish is a way of preserving the fish for future use by drying them in the sun until the water is completely evaporated) and sells them as dried fish. Demand for dried as well as fresh fish is very high in the region.

All the members of this group are engaged in selling fresh and dried fish in the market. In order to strengthen the business and respond to client demands, Rasmita and her group Shree Shree Hariharadev Self Help Group (SHG) has requested a loan of 165,000 INR to purchase fishing nets and storage boxes to keep fish. Their goal is to increase their business activity.
