 Grain bank- a boon for poor villagers
Maina, aged 60 years, lives in village Kurianpurwa Ekghara with 5 member family. She belongs to backward caste. They do not have land and work as agriculture labourer. The cereals that they get as wages during harvest do not support them for the whole year. Moreover they do not get any wage work in lean agriculture season. It becomes really difficult to feed the family in such time. They borrow cereals from large farmers of the village. In return they get lower wages for their labour during agricultural season. Shramik Bharti established a Durga Grain Bank in village Kurianpurwa Ekghara in Oct2011 with the support of HelpAge International. The grain bank is managed by Om Shree, a volunteer selected by Durga Elderly Women Self Help Group. This grain bank was started with 1500 kg wheat. This was stocked in 3 metal bins. One day in the month of January, I had very little flour to cook. Neither my husband nor me were getting any work for last one week. We were sitting and discussing what to do now. All of a sudden I remembered that our group had started a grain bank few months back. Next morning I met Om Shree, who manages Durga Grain Bank in our village. I borrowed 100 kg wheat. It was really a great relief. My family was very happy that day. When we got wheat as our share in harvesting work, we returned to grain bank the 100 kg along with 25 kg as our contribution. Durga Grain Bank is a real bank for us.
