Maa Mangala Self Help Group's story

In 2009, 11 women from a village stepped out and formed a group having name Maa Mangala Self Help Group in Odisha. They help each other and share their problems and solve them among themselves. They celebrate their festivals together in their village.

Sanjukta, leader of the group, has six goats. She purchases the goat kids from the market and takes care of them.

She provides vaccines and fodder to them when it is required. She goes out in the morning to leave the goats for grazing in the fields and returns by noon. Then she cooks for her family. She resumes taking care of her goats by feeding them at home. She sells them for meat to the local butcher shops when they grow. Her husband assists her in selling and maintaining these goats. It takes eight to nine months for her to raise and sell them. In this way she is learning 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 10 more goats. In this way she can earn a good amount after all expenditure in her business.

She has requested a loan of 1,65,000 INR for her group. So that they can earn more and can control their family's cash flow.

In this group: Sanjukta, Basanti, Premalata, Rasmita, Pratima, Manjulata, Susila, Hem, Rebati, Marua, Basanti
