Sanjo
Sanjo aged 40 years, lives in Chach Basti, Bulandsher with a big family of 7 members. She got associated with SCNL about 3 years back when she used to work as a construction labourer on daily wages along with her husband who used to do the same. Sanjo and her husband wanted to get financially secure and provide education to her 5 children. With a help of a neighbour who was already a member with SCNL she got associated with the organization. Sanjo received her first loan of Rs.15,000 with which she started a small venture of making bamboo baskets. With her second and third loan cycle of Rs. 25,000 and Rs. 35,000 respectively she invested the money to expand her business. Soon Sanju was supplying these baskets in the shops in the nearby market area. Seeing her growing business and in need of more helping hands both Sanjo's elder daughter and her husband joined her. Today, Sanjo's family is happy, financially independent and secure. Her 3 daughters and son now go to school in their village area while her elder daughter who helps her is about to get married in a good house in a couple of months.
