A loan of $150 helped a member to buy a smokeless stove.

Sri Poigaimariyamman Shg - Avoor Group's story

Malliga is leader of the Sri Poigaimariyamman Self-Help Group, which is formed by the local NGO, People Action for Transformation (PAT), in Tamil Nadu, India. This NGO helps people improve their livelihood.

Malliga is married and lives in Avoor village with her husband, Ramalingam. They have three children and live in their own house. Her husband is a farmer and works for daily wages.

Malliga has previously taken loans from the PAT for improving her economic conditions and has repaid the loans on time.

Malliga, like the other members of the group, is requesting a loan to buy a smokeless stove to have a healthy life. Smokeless stoves are economical and greatly reduce carbon emissions, limiting the toxic and hazardous effects of indoor pollution on children and women.

Malliga dreams of better careers for her children and hopes to improve their economic status.

In this group: Malliga, Dhanam, Vasuki, Vijayalakshmi, Manjula, Dhanam
