Anjali Das, her husband and their only girl child lives in the Village-Kasba of Dakshin Dinajpur district, West Bengal. Her husband is a Farmer by profession; who cultivates mainly Paddy, jute etc. He was the only earning member of the family. His income from cultivation was not sufficient to maintain the family expenses and the education of their child, as expenses are growing up day by day but income from the cultivation is decreasing gradually. In this situation Anima Roy was thinking about to start an income generating activity to support her husband but due to insufficient fund it was not possible to start any income generating activities. She was quite at a loss, “what to do?” After a few days suddenly a VFS representative came to her home for “Household survey” and advised her to be a member of a Joint liabilities group. Having being inspired from the VFS representative she took a loan of Rs. 14000/- from our Buniadpur branch to Purchase a second hand TOTO for her husband’s part time work; at present she has purchased a COW with the 3rd circle loan of Rs 20000/-.
She is very thankful to VFS for supporting her in the situation. Now she is a happy and confident woman. In her words, “Today I am able to help my husband to run my family with my own income. It would not be possible without the help of VFS, I am great full to VFS.”
