The Foundation’s 11-year partnership with NABARD through the bank’s M.P. state unit, has improved the livelihood options of rural women by training them and giving them access to micro-credit facilities, to help them start individual enterprises. In recent years, the partnership has focused on digitisation of financial records of women’s Self-Help Groups (SHGs) and initiating a women’s cooperative society, Tejaswini Mahila Bahuprayojan Sahkari Samiti. As part of his visit, Dr. Chintala inaugurated the newest outlet of Tejaswini in the main market selling soft furnishings, handicrafts and other items. He also handed over a credit cheque of 5 lacs from the Madhya Pradesh Gramin Bank to the members of the cooperative society to aid expansion of their business. In appreciation, Dr. Chintala was presented with a comforter, one of the society’s most popular products. Dr. Chintala in his address stated that it was an honour for NABARD to work with partner NGOs like SNS Foundation.
The Chairman was accompanied by Mr. T. Raji Gain, Chief General Manager, NABARD, M.P., and Mr. Avinash Tiwary, District Development Manager, NABARD Dewas.
