Maa Santoshi Shg (A) Group's story

In 2010, 11 women from a village stepped out and formed a group called "Maa Santoshi SHG" in Odisha. They help each other and share their problems and solve the problems among them. They celebrate their festivals together in their village.

Minarani, in the picture the girl standing with raised hand, is the leader of the group. She lives with her parents and siblings. She has six goats. She purchases the goat kids from the market and takes care of them. She provides vaccines and fodder for them as they require. She sells them for meat to the local butcher shops when they are grown. It takes 8-9 months for her to grow them for sale. She goes out in the morning let the goats graze in the fields and returns by noon. Then she cooks for her family. She resumes taking care of her goats, feeding them at home. Her brother assists her in selling and maintaining these goats. In this way she is earning to control her cash flow, which however, is not sufficient to manage her daily activities.

She wants to enlarge her business, so she wants to purchase 10 more goats. In this way she can earn a good amount after all expenditures in her business.

She has requested a loan of 110,000 INR for her group, so that they can earn more and control their families' cash flow.

In this group: Chinmayee, Minarani, Basanti, Indumati, Basanti, Sachi, Atapi, Suryamani, Sashirekha, Ranjana, Nayani
