"The nearest bank is very far from our village," says Jagganath, who has difficulty walking due to an accident. "But our Grameen Mittra, Patale, helps me withdraw money and I don’t have to leave the house. She is like a blessing for me.”

[Our Mittra] is like a blessing for me.  
— Jagganath Hatwar

One Mittra can serve, on average, 100 households in a year. The regions in which they work have an average household number of three people. With thousands of Grameen Mittras currently working in India, the ripple effects they have are felt through entire communities.
