Meet Pramila who is striving hard for the education of her daughter

I went to meet Rashmita and her mother, Pramila, a member of Maa Tarini JLG (Joint Liability Group) in Bhuvaneshwar, on 31st of October, 2014. She lives in Rental colony of Behrera Basti with her husband and five children. They have been living in the village for the last 20 years and have their small dairy farm. Pramila had taken a loan of Rs 20,000 almost six months back from Milaap for funding the education of her daughter Rasmita who is currently enrolled in Biju Pattnaik College, BBSR in 11th standard. The loan amount was used for paying the various educational expenses such as admission fees, tuition fees and other related expenses. The motivation for Pramila to take Milaap loan is to assist her husband carrying the burden of family expenses.  She could be only granted a loan of 20,000 which is often based on the assessment done by the Milaap field partner. She had a very good experience with Milaap and the field partner, Mahashakti Foundation and is quite happy with the loan.
