I am Sangita Rajendra Deshmukh based out of Dhamangaon Deviche village of Pathardi Block Ahmednagar dist. I have my small business of Grocery Shop and flour mill. Because of financial crunch in family, I was force to close my shop. During that period Uma madam (SELF staff) came in village and gave us the information about SELF providing loan assistance to women for self-employment and business purpose. Other women from our area, who were already aware about the JLG concept motivated me and asked to attend all the meetings. We also had a round of training where entrepreneurship skills were imparted to us and guided us to earn our livelihood from non-farm activity. I took first loan from Sampada of Rs. 20,000/- on June 2018. I invested in my grocery shop and reopened it. I was always committed for timely repayment and keeping the same in view, SELF gave me the second loan of Rs.30000/- on June 2019 and subsequent loan 40000/-in Sept 2020. This loan amount was always invested in purchasing the raw material for the shop. SELF was not only instrumental in helping me restart the loan but also assisted me in expanding the business and learning concept of entrepreneurship that helped me to lead the business successfully. In this way I can start my business again and achieved my success. Will always be thankful to SELF.
