Jyoti Sahu
a resident of Tilapura, Berasiya and aged 29 years, Jyoti lives with her husband and 2 children. Jyoti got associated with SCNL about 4 years back to get financially independent and to share equal financial responsibility with her husband to manage expenses. With the first loan of Rs.12,000 from SCNL, Jyoti purchased a sewing machine and with her second loan of Rs.18,000 she opened a parlour. With these two ventures Jyoti’s income increased and she paid off both her loan instalments on time. Now, with the third loan cycle of Rs.25,000 and from some of her savings Jyoti has managed to open a bangle and cosmetic shop. She feels very proud in helping her husband by sharing the expense. Today, Jyoti earns Rs.1500 approximately per day through her parlour, cosmetic shop as well as from the stitching work. Her husband and children are very proud of her and she is very thankful to SCNL for making her financially independent.
