“My name is Mungli Lohar. I am from Chhota Nagra. I am in the Moshkal Women’s Self Help Group. I was selected out of many women to be a ‘Smart Sakhi’ (coach). I train other members. Trickle Up partners taught me how to use mobile phones. Now I am passing on these skills. My goal is to lift us out of poverty. We support each other. We borrowed from the group to start a small restaurant. We serve fish, eggs, bread, and samosas.”

“My sister Mungli is a good trainer. She gives us support and encouragement.”

“My sister is a good student.”

“Mungli can get frustrated if we forget something but she always explains it again.”

“Our future is bright. We won’t back down. I am a leader and we can achieve anything… together.”
