Shaktimayee Group's story

Chaimani lives in the small town of Bhawanipatna, the district headquarters of Kalahandi district, Odisha, India. She is a headstrong and confident lady. She hails from a poor family of below poverty line. The lady standing at the extreme right with her hand raised is Chaimani. She is 38 years old and lives with her husband, three daughters and one son.

Chaimani has had a bakery factory for the last 15 years with the active support of her husband. Chaimani gets a monthly income of Rs. 8,500 (INR) from the above business. Out of this income, she hardly is able to manage her household expenses. She needs financial support from Mahashakti to purchase sugar, wheat, whole wheat, oil, etc. for making bakery items. She also wants to invest some portion of the loan for the repair of the factory.

In the year 2010, Chaimani, along with other women members of the locality, formed a group named Shaktimayee to avail a loan from Mahashakti Foundation to expand their businesses. This will be their third-cycle loan.

The other three members of the group, Noorjahan, Salimun and Saira, want loans for a meat shop, motor garage and bag business respectively.

In this group: Noorjahan , Saira, Salimun, Chaimani
