Ann Maa Tarini Shg Group's story

The nine women from this village created a Self-Help group called "Ann Maa Tarini SHG", and Namita is the president of this group. In the picture, the lady seated with a raised hand is Namita. The group is made up of members having a purpose to help and support each other in their business activities and in their personal lives. All the group members are engaged in different activities to make some money for their household expenses.

Namita lives with her parents-in-law, husband and her son, aged eight years, who is in school. She is engaged in flower cultivation and flower selling. In India, the fresh flowers are used for God worship and for decoration; so Namita plucks the flowers in the early morning and sells them to a nearby market at retail as well as wholesale. She also sells the small flower plants.

Her husband is a farmer who is engaged in paddy cultivation; he helps in Namita's flower selling. Namita and her husband both take on all the family's responsibilities. Namita has a dream of making a house for her family and educating her children.

Namita, along with her group members, has requested a loan of 225,000 INR. Namita will use her portion to purchase standard-quality seeds, fertilizers and pesticides for her flowers and flower plant business.

She is really very thankful to Kiva for this opportunity

In this group: Namita, Sulochana, Sasmita, Nirmala, Pravati, Bidulata, Bimala, Binapani, Sanjukta
