JORHAT, July 10: Mabdabi Pegu, who heads Jyoti, a self-help group of Jengraimukh, Kumarbari, and also works as a jibika sakhi (supervisor for Rural Livelihood for Empowering Women), has not only changed her own life, but also provided proper education, living and jobs to seven other members of her family after she was helped by the Assam State Rural Livelihood Mission. Through this, she was provided with a minimum loan to start handloom weaving with silk and mulberry units which helped her to become a self-sufficient entrepreneur and she inspired many rural entrepreneurs from remote areas of flood-hit Majuli island district. Madhabi Pegu after finding herself in the driver’s seat, is gearing up to chat with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 12 through video conferencing. She was selected to chat with the Prime Minister after she had sent a message about her success story as to how the Rural Livelihood Mission changed her life. “The Prime Minister of India is very eager to hear stories from us, from a rural girl like me who got help from the National Livelihood Mission under the leadership of the Prime Minister. I would also like to thank Basanta Hazarika, the Block Project Manager, and Block Coordinator Kalyani Doley for guiding and assisting me,” said Madhabi Pegu on Tuesday.
