Vinam Devi
Aged 26 years, is a resident of Dighi Kala, Patna region where Vinam lives with her husband who is labourer, 3 children and in-laws. Since her husband was the only earning member of the family, it was extremely difficult for a family of 7 members to survive. Thus, Vinam got associated with SCNL and two years back bought a sewing machine with the loan disbursed by SCNL and opened her own small stitching center and started contributing to her family income. In her second loan cycle, she got loan of Rs.25,000 in which she added some more money from her savings and bought some more sewing machines. Today, Vinam Devi has 5 sewing machines and with the increased family income the couple is able to fulfill the needs of their family.
