Financial Assistance Programme

Economical help has been a key to women’s empowerment in both urban and rural settings. Thus, Chithra Don Bosco has joined hands with FAMCO ( Family Development Cooperative Thrift and Credit Society Limited) Pondicherry and Sangamithra Financial Services in order to make loans available at lower interest rates. Famco has its branch office in Chithra. Presently, there are 15 SHG who have availed a loan of about Rs. 20 Lakhs from Sangamithra and 12 SHGs under Famco, have received a loan of Rs. 16 Lakhs. It is expected to grow in the coming years with more and more women showing keen interest in small scale income generation activities.
