Mahalaxmi-2 Group's story

Sanjukta, a young and energetic lady of 35 years, is residing in a slum area of Bhawanipatna town in the Kalahandi district of Odisha, India. She, along with other three women of her locality, has formed a group named Mahalaxmi-2. The lady standing second from left with raised hand is Sanjukta. She lives with her husband, two daughters and one son.

Sanjukta is running a bricks-selling business with the help of her husband. She herself runs her own brick kiln and sometimes purchases bricks from other vendors and supplies them to contractors and house builders. Her monthly net income from the bricks business comes to 10,000 INR. There is a heavy demand for her product due to the growing demands of house construction.

To improve her business, she wants to take a loan from Mahashakti. From the loan, Sanjukta has planned to purchase materials like firewood, sand, coal and rice bran for her business. Sanjukta has a dream to provide better education to her children and construct a house of her own in due course. The other three members of her group, Santilata, Kiranmayee and Manilata, are doing a fruits business, tailoring and an auto repairing center, respectively.

In this group: Sanjukta, Kiranmayee, Manilata, Santilata
