Greens Konammadevi-Jalihal Group's story

Greens Konammadevi is a Joint Liability Group (JLG) with five members. The group is mentored by the local NGO Future Greens Samsthe. The group is based in the small village of Jalihal in Bagalkot District. Basically, all the people in this village are dependent on agriculture and work in the fields as day laborers. Many villagers get involved in lamb and goat rearing as an additional source of income because what they earn is not sufficient to take care of the family needs. Most of the people in this village are from a marginalized section of society.

Konammadevi is the name of a goddess; the bull is the vehicle of this goddess. The group is named after this goddess.

Kamalavva, 28 years old and the lady standing with her hand raised, is the leader of this group. She has finished her schooling until second grade. She could not continue her studies further as her parents were very poor and could not afford her school fees. She is married and is living in a small hut with her husband and a daughter who studying in first grade.

Kamalavva is requesting a loan to start raising lambs and goats. With the profit that she expects from this activity, she wants to build a house and provide the quality education to her daughter that she never received.

In this group: Kamalavva , Lakshmibai, Devakkavva, Renuka, Rekuka
