Description of the project and Grant Assistance Sought for Visually Impaired: -

            For the past 7 years, Mithra has been serving the 120 visually Impaired families in Gandhinagar colony of Nagamangalam village in Manikandam block of Trichy district. Most of the families are engaged in Manufacturing of candle, Incense sticks and computer Incense powder, and market the same in Trichy town and in Dindigul and Madurai travelling by train every day. For working capital, they barrow money from private money lenders who charge highest interest for the principal amount. Thus, the hard work of the visually impaired is exploited by the greedy private money lenders. To relieve them from the exploitative clutches of the money lenders, Mithra needs a grant of

Rs.2, 40,000/- towards disbursing micro finance of Rs.6, 000/- each to 40 visually impaired. By direct investment, each woman can be able to earn Rs.300/- to Rs.350 per day and Rs.7500/- to Rs.8,750/- per month. Through this regular livelihood with enhanced income, the entire family will be relieved from extreme poverty and hunger.
