Shakti Pirakkudhu is an attempt to create a role model and spark greater aspirations among SHG members. As a follow up effort, MMFL has developed various initiatives that include a business education program for the semi-literate.

Shakti Pirakkudhu touches on various principles of business demonstrating things that can go wrong. Importantly, however, it places these in the context of the complex web of human relationships, emotions and attitudes.

Madura Micro finance plans to show this feature film to all it’s members and the general public.
