After hearing about Aastha’s SHG loan system, a few group of ladies, all
neighbors, formed a Self-Help Group for their broom making business.
They have recently taken out their second loan after
successfully repaying their first.
Before their involvement with Aastha these group of ladies had the skills to make
brooms but had no savings. Through Aastha, each woman is now making between
400 and 500 rupees profit per month after paying for the broom raw materials
and loan installments, which they can use as savings.
