  • I was struggling to pay the school fee of my elder daughter, and receiving an AVAG-AVVAI loan meant that I did not take her out of school against her wish, because thanks to Auroville Village Action Group, I was able to pay.

  • I am working as a gardener and my husband is a farmer. We have two daughters, one studying nursing and the other in class twelve. Before I had heard about AVVAI, I thought about getting money from money lenders at a 60% interest rate per year.
