This program aims to reach out the ultra poor women headed households having no assets based sources of income, highly vulnerable, orphans, deserted by husband and mainly depended on wages or beggaring in one of the poverty stricken Lanjigarh Block of Kalahandi District in Odisha.
Our dedicated 3 staff members did Participatory Wealth Ranking Exercise in 9 villages comprising 544 household out which 76 poorest of the poor household surveyed identified by the villagers. Out of the 76 household, 32 ultra poor households have been identified. These women have been trained by our staff for confidence building and to identify business opportunity to come out of extreme poverty. The women as per their capacity decided to do vegetable vending, dry fish vending, Tea & snacks stall, Small Grocerry shop, tailoring etc. We have a plan to provide accounting and business development services to these women for 24 months. After graduation they will be linked to mainstream organizations like Bank and MFIs for financial services.
