General Body meeting of Deenabandu women multipurpose co-operative Society
The shareholders of Deenabandu Women multipurpose co-operative Society had a general body meeting at the FIDES building on October 10, 2021, with 47 women in attendance and the shareholders meeting. The assembly began with an invocation to God and the singing of a song to the Holy Spirit.

Mrs. Seethamma, the society's secretary, read the audited statement, which comprised income, costs, and outstanding loans. Mrs. Swapna Jinto, one of the shareholders and in charge of the e stamp, also discussed the present financial condition. Because of Covid-19, no suitable meetings were held, and the money was not repaid. Moreover, he had no savings.

Mr. Samuel described his experiences with certain individuals who seek loans in groups, and some request loans that are larger than their ability to repay, and they are unable to repay but still demand a large amount of loan to sanction, causing conflict in groups and making smooth operation difficult.

Sr Sumi discussed the criteria for lending and borrowing and asked the members how much loan would be sanctioned if the savings amount was about $10,000, Based on the savings maximum you can take double the amount. Mr. Samuel stated that, while fixed deposits in other banks pay lower interest rates, doing so in our bank pays a better rate of return, as do gold loans, and safety deposit boxes are all accessible in our bank with larger facilities than in other banks. Sr Sumi advises doing the same with the members, and Sister ultimately asks for volunteers to create a federation. The meeting ended up with issuing snacks to group members.
