A loan of $2,775 helped a member to pay for purchasing seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and to pay labour costs for her farmland.

Maa Narayan Self Help Group's story

Pratima, 22, is married and lives with her family in a village in the Nayagarh district. She has three children. To make a living, she has been farming rice on one hectare of farmland for two years. The current business earns her family about 6000 INR per month.

Pratima’s group Maa Narayan Self Help Group consists of ten members who live in the same village. She is in her first loan cycle with Peoples Forum. She is leading her group to apply for a loan. She is going to use her portion to buy fertilizer, pesticides, seeds for her farmland and also use a portion of it for labor costs in water pumping. She hopes this loan will enable her to earn more income from her field business so as to better her family’s living conditions.
