Sahada's story

Sahada, 47, lives in Parandih, Deoghar, Jharkhand. Parandih village is 12 kms from Deoghar town. For years, the village was cut off from Deoghar, as there was no bridge over the Ajoy River. Things changed over the last four years, when the bridge was constructed and the village became accessible.

Sahada is married and a mother of five children. One son is working as a driver, while others are still studying. Her husband has been a masonry worker for the last seven years and earns Rs. 4,000 per month.

Sahada sells accessories and makeup items like bangles, powder, lipstick and face creams in different villages. She also sells them in the weekly market of her village and earns around Rs. 3,000 per month. As an asset, she has one acre of land.

Sahada has repaid her first loan from MESP successfully and now is requesting a second one. She needs a loan of Rs. 8,000, with which she will be able to buy more items and stock up.

Sahada wants to increase her family’s income, and she hopes to save enough for her children’s education. She wants to engage her son in the contractor business.
