Health Care

While the microfinance intervention made by Jagaran definitely helped in the enhancement of the income of our poor borrowers, this income would often flow out to meet the emergency health expenses of the family. We realised that this income leakage had to be taken care of by awareness & knowledge and a number of health camps were organised.
