Empowering Financial Freedom And Security
When Sangeeta joined SMM Co–operative, she did not have her own bank account. She did have a joint account with her husband, back in her native village. She had to ask her husband to take it out money for her. It is mandatory that all the artisans have their own accounts and the group's Manager stepped in to help Sangeeta as did not have the necessary documents.
Now that she has this account, Sangeeta understands more fully the responsibilities and advantages of controlling her own money.
