Maa Tarini Group's story

Suryamani, aged about 53 years, is a widow. She is residing with her nephew, aged about 31 years, at Bhawanipatna of Kalahandi district, Odisha, India. The lady standing on the right with her hand raised (back row, right side) in the photograph is Suryamani.

Suryamani has been running a grocery shop for the last 14 years. She earns about Rs. 7,000 (INR) per month from the business. Although she has a small family of two members only, according to Suryamani, this amount is not at all sufficient for her to manage the household expenditures. So she wants to expand her business to earn some extra income.

She has already availed two loans from Mahashakti.This is her third-cycle loan. With the present loan, she wants to invest in a fridge and ice cream items.

Other members of the group, Indumati, Sarojini, Rabamani, Minakumari and Swapna, need a loan for a rice business, electrical shop, tailoring business, tailoring business and tea stall respectively.

In this group: Sarojini, Suryamani, Indumati, Swapna, Minakumari, Rabamani
