Persevering Despite Criticism

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

In the spring, more attention was paid to increasing the income of the villagers in the group. To improve the financial condition of the group, training was given to the women to make fast foods, such as namkeens (healthy indian evening savory snacks), pakode (a fried Indian snack), etc. Few women tried these at home, and a few succeeded while few did not.

Simple Beginnings of Sweet Success

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This month in Dhoker Jhara Village, we taught the ladies how to earn money from different methods. We had been teaching them these methods before, but they needed time to make their decisions. We tried suggesting a fast food business to many women, but most of them replied that they wouldn’t be able to do this work. Their closed mindsets prevented them from moving ahead.

Changing Old Perceptions

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

 

This past quarter, villagers in Dhoker Jhara have been working hard on income generation.  Among them, Mohit, started a men’s hair salon. He had been afraid to run his own salon because people used to say that tribal villagers are not allowed to cut hair. Only some castes could cut hair. After education, villagers now understand that anyone may open a salon. By seeing Mohit’s example, other villagers were encouraged to increase their income generation.

Increasing Income Opportunities

In the month of August, a man named *Manvay said he would challenge himself to earn more than 1,500 rupees per month (about $210). So, he built a saloon (barber shop) beside the road. During the month of July, after he finished with his field work, he started concentrating on his saloon. He will run it full time after he makes his saloon look good.
