Jayamma lives in Hirekerur, Haveri, Karnataka with her family. She was previously a nurse, but quit in 2006 to pursue a career in agriculture. Since her start in agriculture, she has enlightened and trained women in her village on organic farming. Jayamma is an extremely influential woman in her community, able to sustain her family on her own, and encourages women to be independent. I think that lending money to Jayamma is a good decision, because she is a role model in her village, with great ideas that propel everyone forward. Giving money to Jayamma for her chili powder making machine will help her business immensely, and I believe she deserves funding.
