Sai Baba Group's story

Nayana, age about 32 years old, is the group leader of a four-member group from JKPur Town situated in Rayagada District of Odisha State in India. Her family consists of five members: her husband and three daughters, ages about 13, 10 and 8. The member standing at the extreme right is Nayana.

Nayana is a very active lady who wants some extra income from her own efforts. She has been running a tailoring shop with the support of her husband for the last five years.

Nayana along with three other members of her village formed a group, and this is the first time they will take out a loan from Mahashakti Foundation for the development of their existing businesses. At present, Nayana's family income is 5,000 Indian rupees (INR) per month, which is not sufficient to maintain her family. To improve her living conditions and to earn some extra income, she wants to avail a loan. From the loan she will purchase a Pico machine. She has a dream of opening a training institute for tailoring in her locality.

Regarding the other three members of the group, two members, Rajeswari and Sarojini, want a loan for leaf plate making and selling and the third member, Rajeswari, wants a loan for a salon.

In this group: Rajeswari, Rajeswari, Sarojini, Nayana
