A loan of $1,675 helped a member to repair her handloom and also to buy yarn.

Dorcas Group's story

Neichong is pictured with her hand raised and she is the featured profile member of Dorcas group. She lives with her husband and seven children in a village.

In 2011, she availed a loan from WSDS to start her weaving activities. She weaved traditional shawls and wrap-around skirts for women. In order to supplement the family income she ventured into this activity, which is something she is good at.

Now she needs a loan to do better with her weaving activities. She means to buy yarn for weaving and repair her worn-out handloom to weave. She believes that she can produce more and work faster once her loom is repaired. She can produce at least 15 shawls in a month.

In the future, she plans to establish a small handloom business through purchasing more handlooms and hiring more people to weave. She also hopes to own a cattle farm down the road.

Getting motivated by her, the rest of the group members also need loans to improve upon their activities like poultry, weaving, and vegetable vending.

In this group: Nengkhokim, Kipsojang, Lhingjahat, Chongneilhing, Hatneilhing, Neichong, Rebecca, Jangnu, Hoikhonei
