Anisha Devi – Adding Colours To Life

This is a story of an enthusiastic, self-dependant lady who wants to support her family. Her zeal for work enlightens the paths of others and encouraged young people. Today, Anisha devi is a successful woman entrepreneur. Her husband retired working in a movie theatre. Anisha Devi is a 50 years elderly lady running her bangle business in Nehru colony. She is a mother of 5 sons. She has been a businesswoman from past 32years. Earlier her shop was in the main market but due to high rent charged by the landlord, she shifted her shop from the market into her house. Now it’s been 10years that her shop is in her house. Earlier she faced some problems but now her shop is well known in the locality. As her business is a seasonal business, ladies buy bangles on some occasions or festivals only. So she was not able to earn enough profit. She had a plan to add some cosmetic items in the shop but lacked money and so she was unable to achieve her plan.

She heard about Shikhar Microfinance Pvt.Ltd from her neighbourhood and decided to approach Shikhar for help. She took her first loan of Rs10, 000(Ten thousand rupees) from Shikhar and added cosmetic items in her shop. Slowly and steadily her business has grown. She is thankful to Shikhar Microfinance as they helped her to achieve her dreams and adding colours in life.
