This story is of Mrs. Anguri Devi wife of Mr. Rajkumar from Jhansi. She learned about PrayatnaMicrofinance when their fixed income was dependent on their daily wages. After discussing with their family members, they decided to take a loan for Rs.30,000 and bought a buffalo for a higher daily income for their family. By selling the milk, not only they were fulfilling their basic needs but also added another revenue source for their daily income and created a better front of living for themselves. She says, “we weren’t aware that money can be taken without collateral till Prayatna microfinance came to our village and told us about the loan possibility. We decided to add another revenue source for us. We didn’t know that we would be able to make such a huge difference for ourselves until we came to know about prayatna.”
Once they paid the full amount of their loan, she decided on taking another loan for the second time of Rs.45000 from which she bought another buffalo.
She says, “now, we have two buffalo of more than Rs. 90,000 and by selling the milk from two of them, not only our condition of the house has been better than before but also their children are getting valuable knowledge from good schools.”
