The project will help women better manage their finances, control their spending, develop savings habits, and save for important goals like education and retirement.
Suldina believes the project will give women a greater say in the family’s economic decisions, ultimately leading to financial freedom. The program is delivered through short videos that women can watch at their convenience, curated by leading consultants in training and finance. Through her 1,147 enlightenment sessions, she has provided assistance to 52,070 women, thanks to financial support provided by Experian Credit Information Company Of India Private Limited.
Suldina’s exemplary work on the ground has been featured in major newspapers across the country and has received awards such as the ‘TSS Social Enterprise Global Award’ at the TiE Sustainability Summit 2021 and the ‘Transparency Key’ by GuideStar. The organization’s dedication to empowering women and improving their lives is commendable, and its commitment to improving women’s financial literacy through Project Lakshmi is a step towards that mission.
Special thanks to Money Mentors and their founders Smith Shah, Prithvi Money Management Pvt Ltd and Laxmi Gyan of Priyanka Acharya for supporting this project. Srujna appreciates their contributions and will continue this project for years to come.
In conclusion, the Suldina Charitable Trust’s commitment to women’s empowerment and financial literacy is commendable. Through her livelihoods and projects like Project Lakshmi, Srujna has a positive impact on the lives of women across India and strives to build a better future for them.
