Women who have endured hardship know a thing or two.
Offer them tools and a little training, and step aside.
Meet Comfort, Power Woman.
There is no more powerful motivation than doing right by your children: feeding them well, giving them an education, giving them love and security. That’s why Comfort joined her local farm development planning initiative. With the help of a data-driven Digital Farm Plan, and Bismark, her Grameen Community Agent, Comfort has turned around her family farm and become a successful entrepreneur in her village. Comfort’s Story
Meet Komal, Grameen Community Agent, and her client Madhuri in Ajimabad, Bhandara.
In India, local Grameen Community Agents are known as “Mittras” which translates in Hindi to “Friend of the Village.” Nothing could be truer.
Not only does Komal bring financial stability to her village with Mobile Money services using biometric devices that verify account holders by their thumbprints, she also brings her community together in a way people truly feel and appreciate.
