Poonam Devi
Aged 35 years Poonam lives with her husband and 4 children in Bhagwanpur village, Shamastipur, Patna region. She got associated with SCNL about 3 years back when her first loan was sanctioned for Rs.12,000 from which she purchased a sewing machine and started her own business. In next cycle she got a loan of Rs.25,000 and bought two more sewing machines and expanded her work. This expanded her business further and she kept two ladies who are paid a monthly salary of Rs.1,500 under her who help her in tailoring. Poonam Devi is a happy woman today and her family thanks SCNL for not only empowering them, but also indirectly the two ladies who help them.
