For the last 3 years, Geetha from Anikode in Palakkad district of Kerala along with 3 other women from her neighbourhood successfully runs a canteen at Palakkad municipal premises with the support of Muthoot Microfin subsidiaries of Muthoot FinCorp. Geetha and colleagues’ drive to own a small-scale canteen business didn’t just come out of their passion for cooking but came from necessity. With the support of Muthoot Microfin, Geetha and company didn’t have to look far when they decided to shift to the catering business 3 years ago. Geetha was introduced to Muthoot Microfin by a friend. Impressed by its simple and effective operations, she soon joined a group and encouraged her colleagues to join. All the four ladies became members of a nearby Muthoot JLG and were provided with periodic microfinance loans.
