The ISOS Transformation Group "helps me to grow towards being a responsible citizen and it helps us to come up in life. We help each others' businesses to grow well. We care and help each other. That is the uniqueness that stands out in this group."
"Often I dreamed to be part of this group but it was not reachable to me. I witnessed its growth and impact on the lives of many women who, like me, were underprivileged. I saw them become bold house makers and spiritually blessed despite their situations which were not so good. One day Pastor Saha asked me to join the group, but I told him it's impossible for me to get 25 dollars right away. Then he shared that KGM & FNF USA is willing to bear my expenses. Hearing that, tears rolled from my eyes, my "impossible" dream had come true!"

Establishing Financial Safeguards is Tough for Women in India
Tuesday, March 9, 2021
At Kerusomen, we believe poverty is a women’s issue. We also know that poverty is not just a material condition. In honor of International Women’s Day, see how access to a Christ-centered women’s ministry can restore honor and empower rural Indian women like Shyamala to fight for their future.
Shyamala's transformation began shortly after her husband abandoned her. "In a KGM gospel meeting I accepted Jesus Christ who is the source of my hope and life."
Armed with her faith and church family, Shyamala built a small business sewing clothes that fed her family and paid for her children's schooling for 20 years.Then illness set in causing her legs to swell and making running her push-pedal sewing machine painful. But when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, her business failed.
"Because of the restrictions of Covid protocol, people did not want to visit my home. I became bankrupt. There was no money for buying medicine or meeting my regular needs at home. Members of KGM visited me and ever since started to help me monthly."
Shyamala still doesn't know if her husband is alive or dead. But Kerusomen adopted Shyamala into the widow rescue program to help her bridge the gap in response to the crisis caused by the loss of her business. The physical beatings she endured in her marriage have caused her health to deteriorate faster than her age. The $15 a month pays for her medication and some food.
KGM partners also paid Shyamala's $25 bank deposit, enrolling her into an ISOS Savings Group at her church. The fifty Isos members each save around $1 weekly and pool their resources in a joint bank account. Soon, Shyamala will be able to access loans from the group to help her rebuild.
But Shamala's words of gratitude speak little of finances:
"I do not have enough words to thank both KGM India and USA for being God’s instruments in picking me up from shame and honoring me with God’s righteousness and blessings."
Where Freedom from Poverty Starts
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. - Genesis 1:27
