Purneswari's story

Purneswari is 25, married and lives with her husband and children. She is a rural woman from a small village, Raipara, in Dhupguri in the district of Jalpaiguri. She studied up to grade 7. Her husband Uttam, aged 38 years, is a farmer by profession. They have two school-going daughters who are in grade 6 and grade 9. They live there in their kachha house (straw, bamboo and mud-made).

Purneswari's husband has been working many years on their farmland, and he absorbed good faith, diligence and punctuality. By character, he is determined, hardworking and responsible. He is the main source of income for the family. But his income from this agribusiness is so scanty that it is hardly sufficient to cover all the necessities of their family. So, they have decided to start cultivation of beans on their farmland.

Purneswari is a very optimistic woman. She has come forward to help her husband. She has taken a loan from BJS to purchase bean seeds and good-quality fertilizers to start cultivation of beans. They are very much hopeful to earn an extra profit from this business, as it is a product that is in great demand in the market.

She plans to use the resulting income to build a concrete-made house and to give better education to her daughters. She wants to save money for the future.
