Provide livelihood support for women farmers by providing them with 1 bag of seeds, INR 1950


In the early 1970s , a socialist group of youth began seeking solutions to social and political problems of the rural community with the general aim of achieving a more just and happy society. After nearly 20 years of effort and agitations, they concluded that socio-political change was not possible without economic change. Hence, they established Manavlok, in 1982, a voluntary organization for the socio-economic upliftment of the rural poor.The beneficiaries are locals of Ambajogai and around who need guidance and help in living a better quality of life.

How It Works

• Manavlok works directly with the beneficiaries for this project-Since they've been around for 25+ years, they have a fairly good idea about the locality and the beneficiaries. They've also formed Village Sanitation and Nutrition Committees in each village, where the members of the committee(villagers themselves) also help them identify potential beneficiaries.
• Manavlok guides all its beneficiaries to a particular store to procure fertilizers and seeds from. The beneficiaries then buy fertilizers and seeds in the quantities that they need (the org is pretty sure that thy don't misuse the resources) and the store sends all the bills to Manavlok, which then pays the storekeeper in cheque.


• 45 people benefited out of this program last year.

Sustainability through agriculture
Bhagyashree Kalamis a marginal farmer from Bardapurvillage from Ambajogai Block. Shehas total 4 acres of farm land. As this region falls under drought prone area, the availability of water for crops is very less. It is very difficult for any farmer to earn sufficient farm income if he is fully dependent on rain water. She has two children. Her family’s whole expenditure was dependent on farm incomes. As her family was surrounded by so many outflows like children education, day to day activities she was unable to buy high quality of seeds and fertilizers at one time investment. It affected on her overall incomes.
She is now extremely confident and independent. She is a part of more than 2 SHGs with Manavlok.
Her friends advised her to join self-help groups running through Manavlok. Through Manavlok she obtained high quality of seed and fertilizers in sufficient amount for her farm on loan basis. This has affected on her crop productivity and off course a huge amount of rupees was divided into very small and affordable installments.
