Nirmala sweeps off her difficulties

Nirmala sweeps off her difficulties

Nirmala aged 41 years lives at a temporary hut in Suthanthirapuram Colony with her husband and child. Recently they received a house through a government housing scheme and at the moment it is under construction. Her family used to cultivate groundnut but their land is not suitable for cultivation in the rainy season because of topography of the land. The husband was also involved in the sale of ice cream and other ice based products using his bicycle. But that job also was not suitable for the rainy season. After carefully considering their predicament, she was compelled to look into some other means of generating an income in order to overcome their hardships. During the weekly meeting she shared about her issues with her SHG members.
