Binapani Group's story

Lalita, the lady standing second from right with raised hand in the photograph, is a 36-year-old housewife. She belongs to a poor family of "scheduled caste, below poverty line". She is very active and energetic. She lives with her husband and two sons of six and one year old in Titilagarh town of Balangir district in Odisha, India.

For the last five years she has been running a general grocery shop with the help of her husband. She works very hard to meet their family's needs. She needs additional capital for the growth of her business, as her demand from clients is increasing day by day. Therefore Lalita has requested a loan from Mahashakti Foundation, forming a Joint Liability group with three other women of her locality named Binapani. She will purchase a variety of products including flour, pulses, detergents, oils, etc. to keep up with the increased demand of clients.

Lalita and her husband are very hopeful that the loan will be a lucky and productive one for their family. Lalita hopes to give better education to her sons from her additional income.

The other three members of the group are Nilendri, Kumari and Kunti,running a cycle repair mart, an auto-rickshaw business and a fabrication center.

In this group: Nilendri, Kumari, Kunti, Lalita
