Mary, help Kerala
The physically challenged 45-year old women, salve Mary hails from Wadakanchery. She lives with her husband and three grandchildren. Her husband is a painter and her two daughters are married and well settled. Born as a normal girl, her fate was hanging in the balance as she met with an accident 17 years back. Her left arm was amputated and her right hand was almost paralyzed. Even now she cannot do any major jobs with the right hand.
Four years back, she joined ESAF and later on took a loan of Rs 30,000. Using the loan, she bought unbranded cottage soaps and properly packed it before selling. Her children helped her in packing. Gradually, she managed to win regular customers through door step sales. Her income is of great support to her family. She is thankful to ESAF for the support extended to her. Now she expects bigger loans from ESAF to expand her business and realize her dream of building a house.
