India

Our program is located in Balasore, Odisha, one of the poorest Indian states. Our partner, Nari O Sishu Kalyan Samitee (NSKS), supports women’s self-help groups (SHG) that act as entrepreneurial support and microcredit lending groups. We built a work center supporting three women’s SHGs that manufacture incense, earning each of the women $50 per month, a nice supplement to their monthly family income.
