Maa Laxmi Naryani Shg Group's story

In 2012, Maa Laxmi Naryani SHG was formed with 12 women from a small village in Odisha. Banita is selected as the leader of the group. The lady who is sitting in the second position from the left side of the photograph is Banita.

With the initiative of Banita they are doing monthly saving and solving their problem among the group. They are also taking part in the village decision-making meeting.

Banita is a 30-year-old lady living with her one daughter, one son and her husband. Her husband is involved in agriculture activities. He has nine years of experience in this activity. Because of the growing price of fertilizers and pesticides, they are unable to use fertilizers and pesticides as per the requirement and they are not able to pay the labour charges also. So Banita has applied for a loan to purchase fertilizers and pesticides and to pay the labor charges.

Banita says that this loan can help her to increase her family income and she can provide study materials according to the needs of her children.

In this group: Kami, Anusaya, Janaki, Aina, Rili, Sabitri, Sanju, Bharati, Tophani, Banita, Kumbhati, Jhampulli
