180. ( March 23, 2019) : Ishlawati accesses credit for livelihoods

Ishlawati was very poor before joining Jai Sri Ram SHG in Baharpur Abdullah village of Shukulbazar block, Amethi. She is landless and has 9 members in her family. Her SHG is 8 years old and it is satisfactorily operated. She has taken financial assistance of  Rs 55,000 from her group   on three occasions as under:

  1. Rs 10, 000 towards purchase of buffalo
  2. Rs 35, 000 for bicycle shop on the crossing adjacent to her village, shop being run by her husband.
  3. Rs10, 000 for cycle shop in Jainabganj market at a distance of 2 km from the village. Her son manages this shop.

Though she did not have any own land, now she is cultivating three bigha of land on batai (lease).

From the above income generation activities, there is significant improvement in family’s economic status and family is out of poverty.

Ishlawati is an illiterate housewife. However, she has broken many barriers once she became a member of SHG. She could access financial support from SHG and as a result, the family has now decent livelihood sources. Her sons are educated. She acknowledges that the change could be possible because of her SHG.
