A loan of $1,125 helped a member to purchase a gas stove and repair the roof of her tea stall.


Maa Thakurani Group's story

Banita is about 40 years old and lives with her husband and four children at Bhawanipatna, in Kalahandi district of Odisha state in India. She has three daughters, aged about 17, 15 and 12, and one son, aged about 10 years. All are studying at school and college now. The lady standing at the extreme left with her hand raised is Banita. She has been running a tea stall for the last eight years, with some snack items prepared by her along with her husband. From the above, her family gets a monthly income of 6,000 INR, with which it is very difficult to maintain her family. She has already availed one loan from Mahashakti during last year. Now she wants another loan to purchase a gas stove and repair the roof of the tea stall for the expansion of her business. She has an ambition to provide a better education to her children for a bright future. Other members of the group, Swarnaprabha, Gitadei, Partha and Banita, need loans for an automobile shop, a betel shop, a fish business and a chicken center respectively. All the members have established businesses, and it will be their second-cycle loan from Mahashakti Foundation.
