Nongpok Panthoibi Shg Group's story

Pecha, the woman with her hand raised, is a member of Nongpok Panthoibi. She lives with her husband and four children. Her husband is a mechanic who fixes vehicles in a workshop. In order to supplement the family income Pecha opened a variety shop in the market area. She sells 3000 to 4000 INR every day. In order to generate more income she keeps fresh vegetables from her own kitchen garden to fill up the store.

Apart from the variety store, from time to time Pecha also sells women's clothes. She buys things at a lower price and sells them to get little extra profit. Pecha says, she and her husband have to work very hard to sustain the family and to send their children to school to get an education like other children. With the loan amount she wishes to expand and refill the shop. She thanks WSDS for being so gracious to her, and she believes that her burden will be much lighter now. Like her the rest of the group are engaged in sand sheaving, weaving and tending shop.
