Vijaya Laxmi Mahila Swa Sahay Group's story

Laxmibai is 33 years old and lives in Khemlapur village, Raibag, Belgaum. She has studied until the 11th grade. She is married and has two sons who are studying in 8th and 6th grade. They live in their own house, which is provided by the government.

Laxmibai (the lady with her hand raised in the picture) has some experience in goat and buffalo rearing. She purchased a calf four years back, which at present gives four liters of milk per day. She sells the milk to KMF Federation, which is located in her village. She also works in the agriculture fields as a daily wage worker and sometimes helps her husband in his tailoring business.

Laxmibai is requesting a loan to buy another calf. She hopes to save enough for her children’s education so that they are well settled. She even wants to open a petty or mobile shop in her village.

This is the first time the group, “Vijaya Laxmi Mahila Swasahay” Self-Help Group (SHG), will take a loan. The group consists of eight members including Laxmibai who leads this group. The other seven members are Renuka, Mahadevi, Sangeeta, Mallavva, Rukmavva, Sevanta and Paravva. All are daily wage workers in the agriculture fields. They want loans for animal husbandry.

In this group: Laxmibai Sanju, Renuka Annappa, Mahadevi Hanamanth, Sangeeta Ashok, Mallavva S, Rukmavva Mahadev, Sevanta Srikanth, Paravva Chidanand
