Maa Bimala Shg Group's story

The Maa Bimala Self Help Group consists of 10 members from a small village in the Kalahandi district, Odisha, India. All the members of this group are female. They are engaged in different business activities for the elimination of poverty. Three of the women have very low incomes, but this helps them to want to struggle harder to get ahead. One person who deserves to be highlighted is Subhashree (in the picture the lady seated in the middle in a green sari), who works selling vegetables. Through her job, she works to support her family, to improve her business and continue growing. She is a very determined person who wants to continue growing. She is seeking part of this loan in order to be able to invest it in the purchase of vegetables like tomatoes, onions, green peppers, potatoes and other vegetables so that she can continue with her sales. The group is very grateful for this opportunity for growth that it is receiving.

In this group: Subhashree, Pravati, Mangal, Sudha, Binodini, Astami, Susila, Sakuntalab, Saraswati, Dutika
