Neelambika, Mumtaz, Sabhana Taj, Akhtarunnisa are the leaders in Mysore district. They are running organization since 15 years.There are 8 other leaders in the organization, 21 settlements and around 125 members are peresnt in the settlement.The people in settlement make saving either daily or weekly. Around 500 to 2000 savings is done per settlement every day. If they want any educational loans,any health issues or any other financial problems or at emergency situation loan will be issued by mahila milan.
They had shelter issues in these settlements, mahila milan people spoke to slum board, fought and got those issue resolved. They do savings in bank and post office. The challenge right now they have is members are getting attracted to the loans without savings provided by other financial institutions. The threat here is huge interest rate which people are ignoring.
