Progress Report
  Date: Apr 20, 2010

I went to collect the progress report of Bimla Devi and her group. When I met with Bimla Devi and her family they were very please to she us. She asked us for a seat and when I enquired her about her business she said that her business is running well now. She also added that she is now serving to more customers than before. Prabha Devi has expanded her vegetable business. She is also started saving some amount of her profit now. There monthly income has been raised. All the members are doing well. All the group members are happy to take this loan from Ajiwika as they have to make monthly repayments where as other MFIs operating in this area require weekly repayments which is quite difficult for them.
