VFS provides sustainable income generation opportunities for underprivileged women in the villages. It extends credit and complimentary financial services to households, entrepreneurs and small business owners which create and sustain jobs, reduce poverty and empower their clients, particularly women. One such woman is Archana Bhattacharya of Ariadaha, Belghoria. It is hard to imagine that once she had gone through an endless struggle against poverty. To support her family, she took training in the beautician course and used to go to customers’ place as and when she got a call. At that time, a VFS representative came to her place and explained her about the services they provide. Archana joined a self-help group in her village and took a loan of Rs. 5000 from VFS for purchasing beauty products. That time, her average monthly income was Rs. 2000. She was then thinking of getting a permanent place for providing service. Initially, she had taken a room on rent to run a beauty parlour but now she has her own facility and her present outstanding loan amount is Rs. 30,000. She is now earning around Rs. 10,000 per month. She expresses her gratitude to VFS for helping her change her life.
