Rahila Tirkey is a mother of three children who are studying in a government high school but schools have been shut because of the pandemic. Her family has been facing hardships because of the pandemic and lockdowns. Her children are young and depend on her and her husband’s income. Her family has a small land on which she grows a few vegetables for her family members. She used to live in a muddy house and basic facilities are not available causing lots of problems to their family members.
Mazharul Islam, the SoochnaPreneur from her village suggested that she apply for “Awas Yojana”, because she lived in a dilapidated house and was unable to get it repaired due to scarcity of money. She attended the “Panchayat Samitee” meeting and registered her name for her new house. The headman of her village forwarded her request and then she got a no objection certificate for her house. Thereafter, her application was sent to the Block Office Branch and submitted. In the meanwhile she received Rs 130,000/- in three installments (40,000 + 60,000 + 30,000) to build her house.
