SEIZING OPPORTUNITY,

Capri Foundation joined hands with Buzz Women to ensure low-income women become drivers of prosperity – for their destiny, families and communities.

business, Suguna used to run a provision store with her husband.

OUR VALUES

Equal rights to progress

We live in a world where capital creates opportunity. In India, most of this capital rests in the hands of a few and rarely trickles down to those that really need it. If we do nothing, this gap between the haves and have nots would only get bigger. So we decided to do something about it.

OUR VALUES

Equal rights to progress

Every person has the potential to change his or her life. Our role is to give them the support they need to take the reins. We hope to level the playing field for the economically weaker segments of the society, who remain underserved. Rather than labelling individuals without a credit history as credit unworthy, we assess a customer’s repayment capabilities through a unique discussion-based approach.

SEIZING OPPORTUNITY,
SEIZING SUCCESS

Sugana was intrigued after hearing about a training programme for women from the local Anganwadi teacher on how women can improve their businesses by teaching them on how to save money.
The Self-Shakti programme is backed by CAPRI, which provides Buzz Women with the Buzz Bus that is a fully-equipped mobile classroom which reaches the hamlets of the district and at the doorstep of women.

Sugana has not just been able to stabilise her income but also dream bigger.

This wasn’t the first organisation she visited. In 2012, she joined Neemuch Mata SHG with a saving of ₹300 per month. Initially, even saving ₹300 seemed difficult, as she had no source of income and was dependent on her husband. After some time, she started working as an accountant for an SHG cluster.

During a group meeting, she became familiar with Sadhna – a women handicraft enterprise. This was a good opportunity for her to work from home. She practised patchwork as well as embroidery for three months and started working with other women artisans. But she received a meagre amount and no recognition for her work. Thus, she decided to work with Sadhna as an artisan.
