Impact stories

"After the first session of the training, I learnt about book-keeping. And soon I realised that my family was spending around 4,000 rupees on unnecessary things. Saving or investing this money properly would be a smarter alternative. I soon began to take loans from banks instead of relying on private/local money-lenders. Educating my children is important to me, and I had to take loans for the same. So, I keep an eye out for the interest rates and check where the interests are low. I often have people ask me where they should borrow money as well. I also started looking at schemes that allowed me to save on the interest. We are not leveraging our gold for money anymore. I am grateful to Buzz Women for their training."
