Before, she used to get worried about how to manage the uniform for children. However, being a member of saving group she found out the opportunity of releasing loan by which she bought school uniforms for her three children. “I feel privileged being a member of Chandani Self Help Group and do weekly saving. Chadani SHG has provided an opportunity to take a loan in need to us. I took little loan to buy new school uniform for my children and my kids are excited having new uniform and regularly attending school.
Sugni now has planned to do some income generating activities by taking loan from Chandani SHG.
