Community Development

With an average workday of 16 to 18 hours, women in the villages of India often work the hardest and are the most exploited. The primary source of income in the rural part of Anupshahr is agriculture and animal husbandry; both of which are often done by women. With limited earnings, women often take loans from moneylenders. This lands them in a vicious perpetuating cycle due to the high interest rates of around 60%. They have no place to share their feelings or to find ways to improve their own lives. To address this issue, PPES set up a Community Development Division (CDD). Via the CDD, PPES enhances their livelihoods and creates inter-loaning options. All the while ensuring social empowerment through eradicating discrimination.
