“Aspirations Fulfilled”

Seeta Devi, Bherukheda (Agucha)

One day I heard the voice of women singing bhajan in my village. I was curious and wanted to know about the women and the reason of singing bhajan in odd time i.e. night.

Background

Sita Devi who got married in early age never went to school. When other adolescent girls of her age nurture their life by studying and playing games, she is the one who was battling to survive with her husband’s meager income. Her husband is tractor driver, supply water in tanker, she has 2 bigha lands but Due to lack of water, they are totally dependent on weather and rain.

The Turning Point

One night when she heard the voices of some strange women in her village, curiously she approached and interacted with them. She was very impressed with the concept of SHG and moreover motivated with CRPs own experiences and success stories. She saw a ray of hope in it and enthusiastically joined “Roopaheli Mata Self Help Group” in Bherukheda village. She is now relieved from her family’s financial condition since she knew that if certain financial problems would arise then it can be easily sort out with the help of her SHG.

The Remarkable Journey

She shared one such incidence when her husband was pumping up in the tractor tyre, suddenly the tyre burst and the clogged soil went into her husband’s eyes, and at that time she didn’t have money for her husband’s treatment. She called Samuh Sakhi and told about her situation, Samuh Sakhi suggested her to take a loan from SHG. They immediately called SHG’s members, conducted meeting & discussed about her the issue. Her fellow members collectively agreed that she should withdrawal money from group. She then borrowed loan of Rs. 2200 for her husband treatment.

The SHG is only way at village level where by depositing a small amount, we are becoming independent not only financially but emotionally as well. Said Seeta Devi
