A strong woman who has always been interested in the well-being of her community, Leelavati came to Buzz India’s training and found herself touched by the cause to help women. “I was not saving money, I used to spend my money without any control. My husband was giving Rs.5000 per month but I couldn’t manage the expenses within that money and I borrowed money and have got caught in the troubles of being in debt. After Buzz India came and gave us this training, I realised that I should not create any more debt. If I have Rs.100, I will save Rs.10 at least out of it. Firstly, I should open a bank account after which I will save on a monthly basis or even weekly basis. From the money that accumulates I can fund the education of my children, I can build a house and progress in my life.”
Leelavati’s learning does not end here. “I learned so much from the training here that I now want many more women to know what I learned here. As part of my SHG group and other community activities, I am going to help other women become financially independent”, says a very confident Leelavati. That’s how change begins and creates ripples wherever it goes.
