Kodumon (Pathanamthitta): The members of a Neighbourhood Group of Women (Ayalkoottam) took a compassionate step by joining hands to conduct the marriage of their friend’s daughter.
Radha, member of Jyothirmayi Ayalkoottam in Kodumon panchayat, was struggling to conduct her daughter’s wedding due to financial crisis. But the women’s group showed their true power raising funds for the ceremony. They considered Radha’s daughter as their own and took a linkage loan in their names to help her.
With the help of Community Development Society (CDS), loan was sanctioned from Kerala Gramin Bank Chandanappalli branch within 15 days. Rs 2 lakh was approved in the names of all members of the group. The amount was handed over to Radha in the presence of Ayalkoottam members, panchayat authorities and CDS chairperson.
