“My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors.” ~ Maya Angelou

Bonoshri Naskar is thriving in a rural village of West Bengal. Four years ago, your support provided her with 2000 rupees ( US$28) as a micro loan to start her small shop. She succeeded in engaging her husband’s support to this business which is rare and setting a great precedent in this local community.

Today, Bonoshri makes profit from selling groceries and supports her family. Her dream is to give a good education to her daughter so she can help others in the village.Your contribution of as little as $5 a month will provide micro loans for nearly 500 mothers in West Bengal this year.
