Chinmayee Group's story

Amita, aged about 32 years, is the group leader of a four-member group from Rental Colony, Baramunda of Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India. Her family comprises four members: her husband, one son and one daughter of 12 and 6 years respectively. The member sitting second from the right in front of the sewing machine is Amita. At present, she is sewing dresses for ladies for the last two years and became a ladies’ tailor master in her locality. She is a very active lady who wants some extra income out of her own efforts.

Amita’s husband is assisting her to run the business smoothly by taking thread, blouse piece, clothes, etc. At present, her family income is Rs. 5,000 per month, which is not sufficient to maintain the family.

To improve her living condition and to earn some extra income, she wants to avail a loan from Mahashakti. From the loan amount, she will purchase a sewing machine and stitching materials in bulk quantities. She has a dream to increase her business, stitch readymade dresses, supply them to the market and educate her children in a better school.

The other three members of her group are Tilotama, Sumitra and Bulilata, who are running a saree shop, tea shop and tailoring unit respectively.

In this group: Amita, Tilotama, Sumitra, Bulilata
