Adyanath Self Help Group's story

Adyanath Self Help Group is a group consisting of nine members of whom all are women. These entrepreneurs are very humble, hardworking and responsible people with good manners and lots of enthusiasm to improve their lives. Few years back they all were facing the same kind of situation of poverty, so they planned to start a grocery shop where they could provide the basic household consumables to their customers.

One of them is Mrs. Nilima who was selected as their president. Nilima is a 46-year-old lady living with her husband. The lady siting to the extreme right wearing a green saree is Nilima. Her husband works as a labourer in a factory situated near her village. She runs a grocery shop to help her husband financially. She sells rice, grains, lentils, edible oil, spices, biscuits, soap, detergent, hair oil etc. in her shop. She has developed a very good relationship with her customers in the village.

Nilima likes the fact that she can cater for the needs of the people in her village. She has a plan to make her shop bigger and keep multiple things in her shop to satisfy her customers. She also wants to purchase the items for her shop in bulk directly from the wholesalers, for which reason she has requested a loan to utilize it in purchasing the items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, soft drinks, wheat flour, grains and other household consumables.

Nilima, along with her group members, has requested a loan amount of 135,000 INR.

In this group: Nilima, Rojalin, Pravasini, Bidulata, Jyotshna, Bidulata, Sashmita, Puna, Lipi*
