Maa Sidheswari Self Help Group's story

Bhasi is a 41-year-old lady living with her husband and her two children, ages 14 and 17 years old, who are in school. Bhasi's family income is only 3,000 Indian rupees (INR). That is very low, and that is why she started her own business two years ago. She cultivates vegetables in her village and sells them at a nearby market. Bhasi's husband helps her; he is also a farmer having good experience in cultivation. Bhasi formed a group that is "Maa Sidheswari Self Help Group" with nine other women from her village. All the member of this group are engaged in different activities, such as selling milk, a grocery shop and vegetable cultivation. Bhasi and her group have requested a loan of 120,000 INR to purchase better quality seeds and fertilizers, so she can produce more vegetables to sell. Bhasi has a dream of making her children educated and giving a better standard of living to her family.
