Maa Santoshi Shg Group's story

Jhuna operates a food stall/restaurant selling soft drinks, snacks, and breakfast. Jhuna has been involved in this business for more than seven years. The main hardship that Jhuna faces in her business is the lack of capital. She is requesting a loan to purchase materials to maintain the refreshment stall (Small bar with coffee, tea, soft drinks, fast food).

Jhuna is 32 years old and has two children. The lady standing with her hand raised is Jhuna. Jhuna is the group leader of the Maa Santoshi self help group, which consists of eight members. She lives and works in the small village of Nayagarh district, a rural area in Odisha state, India.

In 2013, Jhuna joined People's Forum to improve her business. This is the first loan for Jhuna with People's Forum.

With her business profit, Jhuna hopes for her business to do well, for her children to find a good school, and to be able to buy more supplies and equipment for her business.
