Progress Report
  Date: Feb 27, 2010

Abida khatun and all her group members are very thankful to all their guarantors for their help. Each of the group members received Rs. 8000/- as a microloan. After taking loan she has purchased products of different qualities to attract more customers. Due to increase in customers her income has also increased from Rs.2000/- to Rs.3000/- per month. Afda Khatun runs a tailoring shop. After taking loan she has purchased one sewing machine and has hired one person. She has also moved her shop to a road side where she gets many customers. Now she also saves some amount for the future requirements. The group members are happy to take loans from Ajiwika as it takes repayments from its clients monthly where as other MFIs operating in this area require weekly repayments which is quite difficult for the clients. Recently, Jharkhand was declared as drought affected state but their business did not get affected. They are doing well.
