                                          I.            Sangita Rajmane: Save More, Spend Less

Sangita Rajmane, one of the beneficiaries of financial literacy course and agriculture workshop of Mobile B-school.  Sangita also have saving account in Mann Deshi Bank. 

She is owner of small readymade shop and runs tailoring business.  Sangita has participated in financial literacy program of Mann Deshi.  Sangita says, “After participating in financial literacy course I improved my knowledge about “wise use of money”.  Without delay I opened saving account in Mann Deshi Bank and started saving Rs.500 per month.  Financial literacy taught me, Save More & More and Spend Less.”

Sangita further added that in agriculture workshop she learned about how to grow drumstick tree, how to do marketing of drumsticks, how to earn profit.  Also got information about Nursery of plants and how to take care of drumstick plants. After taking the course Sangita started bowing drumstick plants near her house. Nearly 700 plants she grows and sold for Rs.10 each.  Sangita also understood that parts of Drumstick trees have medicinal value and she is using juice, paste, power of seeds, flowers and leaves as a medicine for different purposes.  Also spreading her knowledge of “use of medicine” within community.

After her connection with Mann Deshi through financial literacy and agriculture workshop Sangita aware about the other courses that Mann Deshi provides.  Immediately she joined basic and advance tailoring course in Mobile B-school.  And it’s amazing that Sangita’s monthly income has been increased by Rs.2000/-

Thank you very much for your support in creating women entrepreneurs like SANGITA.
