A loan of $2,025 helped a member to pay for admission in Intermediate Commerce.


Hingulai Group's story

Sanjulata, 37 years of age, is the leader of a group that hails from Siripur, Bhubaneswar of Khurda district of Odisha, India. Her family is comprised of her husband and two sons. The member standing first from the right with raised hand is Sanjulata. Sanjulata’s elder son Rajeswara has just passed his matriculation and wants to continue his studies. In the photograph he is standing just behind Sanjulata. For higher education he wants to take admission in Intermediate Commerce (+2 commerce) at Biju Pattnayak College, Bhubaneswar. The monthly income of Sanjulata is about Rs.8,500 which is not at all sufficient to meet her monthly expenditures. The higher education of her son is now a financial burden. Hence she formed a group with five other members from her locality and applied for financial support from Mahashakti. It will be the first cycle loan for the group. The other five members of her group, Binodini, Mamata, Lilibala, Pramodini and Sandhyarani, also want a loan for the education of their children. In the photo students are standing in front of their respective mothers except for the featured member's son.

In this group: Binodini, Lilibala, Mamata, Pramodini, Sandhyarani, Sanjulata
