Seva Setu’s initiative to help Self-Help Groups producing Sattu

It is not just about earning a livelihood. It is much more than that. It is about the confidence, the sense of fulfillment, the happy face at the end of the day and the feeling of doing it all on your own. That and much more, is what the 11 willing women from ‪#‎Rajapakar‬ and ‪#‎Jandaha‬ blocks of ‪#‎Vaishali‬ district of ‪#‎Bihar‬, seem to be experiencing as they roast gram, get it ground to produce “Sattu”, and sell it. Each of them spares not more than 12 hours every week after her regular work and pockets Rs. 1,000 per month as profit.

Seva Setu played a humble and an extremely fulfilling role in initiating this SHG (Self-Help Group). We consistently support them by providing finances (to procure raw material) as and when required, by finding buyers and by just being with them. While the usuals of scaling up rapidly, bringing in more resources and reaching out to many more of them remains our top priority, we do find a little time to share our small successes with you.
We present to you some photos of these really brave women at work.
