Creating pathways of progress
Savita and Ramlal, fought hard against poverty, but never abandoned their dream of a better life; Axis Bank is proud to partner their journey from financial distress to a life of dignity
When Savita and her husband Ramlal came to Najarpur, Ghatiya, Ujjain, the family did not have a regular source of income. Ramlal was doing odd jobs for survival and Savita worked as a daily wage labourer in construction projects, around her village.
With nobody else to lend a helping hand, Savita approached the local Axis Bank branch for a loan of `18,000 under the Axis Sahyog programme. She invested the money to start a small business of readymade garments. Her husband also supported her
After a prolonged struggle, today, with a monthly income of around `8,000 per month, Savita and Ramlal finally have a reason to smile. An inspiration to many women like her, Savita now motivates others in the village to become self-employed.
“Thanks to the support of Axis Bank, I am now confident to provide good education to my children and secure their future. Today, people respect our family and I am grateful,” she says.
