Kamala Shivanna

Mysuru | Karnataka | Cash Crops

Kamala Shivanna, a woman of 30, hailing from Karnataka, has been involved in cultivation of grains and vegetables for the past 6 years, labouring for 8 hours a day. Agriculture being her chief occupation, anything unusual will result in a great loss of income. At times, the non-availability of timely loan for buying seeds, fertilizers hinders the farming activities or sometimes crops do not demand the marginal or minimum rate. The untimely showers no doubt will have a great impact. She's been earning for about Rs. 3,000/- and it is to be noted that for a farmer an income can be earned only after a good harvest. Her husband is paid Rs. 2,000/- monthly for working as a coolie. This doesn't help them to make all their ends meet. She needs money for cultivating the next crop apart from the family expenses. Besides, she'll have to support her children's education (studying 1st and 2nd standard) will this little income. A loan is inevitable in such a situation and therefore she seeks the help of Rang De for a loan of Rs. 25,000/- to buy the seeds, fertilizers, manure, pesticides, insecticides and for equipment and ploughing charges. Please do help Kamala by contributing your part. As a matter of fact, she strives to feed a hundred families along with hers. read more

I believe that microcredit needs to be affordable if it aims at helping people overcome poverty.

A strong believer in women empowerment Waheedaji has been a constant source of motivation for the team. The legendary actress accompanied us on a field trip to get a first-hand experience of microcredit and has participated in numerous Rang De events.
