Manideepa Self-Help Group-2's story

Anima, 38, is married and has three daughters and a son. Two of her daughters are married while the younger daughter and son are studying in school. She has poultry farm where she raises and sells chickens and eggs. Regardless of her considerable efforts, she faces difficulties including the high price of supplies, the low price of their products, and insect issues.
