Maa Santoshi Shg (A) Group's story

Kuni (shown in the photo standing with hand raised) is a 26-year-old woman who is married and has two children who are in school. She lives in a small village of Odisha, India. Kuni produces and sells flowers in the community where she lives. She learned this line of work from her parents who dedicated themselves to this trade for many years. Kuni’s work enables her to generate the necessary income for sustaining her family. She says that she enjoys her work because it is honest labor and it helps her feel useful in her community. Kuni has more than 7 years of experience in this trade. She decided to organize a group so that she and her fellow group members could help one another and improve their standard of living. Kuni will use her loan to buy supplies (such as fertilizer) and to pay for labor so that can maintain her flower plants. She dreams of increasing her flower plantings so that she can improve her income.
