Supriya Saha Poddar along with her husband and two children lives in the Village-Santanagar of West Tripura district, Tripura.
Her husband is a Potter by profession; He was the only earning member of the family. His income from the work 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 business was not growing as per the need. In this situation She 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 getting frustrated, “what to do?” After a few days suddenly she happened to meet a VFS representative who advised her to be a member of a Joint liabilities group. Getting inspired from the VFS representative she took a loan of Rs. 15000/- from our West Tripura branch to start a business of pot decoration for different occasion. Initially the business was not so profitable but now it is running well. Her husband does the marketing for the product.
Now she is a confidant working women and very thankful to VFS for supporting her in the situation. She said “Today I am able to help my husband to run my family with my own income. It would have not been possible without the help of VFS”
