Neheru Group's story

Iswariama is a housewife aged 38 years, who lives with her husband and four children in a rural village named Basuguda in Rayagada district of Odisha state in India. The lady standing second from the left raising her hand is Iswariama.

She has been running a grocery shop for the last four years and also has worked as the main cook for marriage parties in nearby villages. Her family gets a monthly income of 6,500 INR which is very little to cover her family's expenses. Presently, she, along with her family members, lives in a thatched house.

She wants to access a loan from Mahashakti to purchase rice, oil, sugar, salt, tea, potatoes, onions, garlic, and washing powder, etc. for her grocery shop. This is the first loan of the group from Mahashakti.

The other three members of the group Santoshi, Rashmita and Mutalluama are doing bamboo work, a "leaf plate" business and a grocery shop respectively.

In this group: Iswariama, Santoshi, Rashmita, Mutalluama
