Jyothi, living in Rampur village in Karnataka, lost her job during the initial weeks of lockdown. The family was entirely dependent on her husband’s income, which was not enough to meet the ends.
However, through her acquaintance, she came to know about the benefits of enrolling in the DEF’s Smartpur project. After completion of her training program, she set up a Spoke center and rented a room for her office in the same organization where she was previously working.
Jyothi started by providing digital payment services to the people, filling government ID cards online applications, mobile recharge, photocopy, lamination, money transfer and other digital services. And, slowly she started earning well, and it turned out to be better than her previous engagement. In addition, she assists people in getting MUDRA loans. Recently she has helped 17 people to get the loan.
