The project will focus on creating a dedicated cadre of 100 Digital Sakhis in Murshidabad, who will play a pivotal role in imparting module-based training to the community, with a special emphasis on women, the NBFC said.

The launch of the project in Murshidabad follows its introduction at Madurai in Tamil Nadu on June 28 this year, the statement said.

The rapid expansion of  the ‘Digital Sakhi’ project is attributed to its successful implementation in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, West Bengal, Karnataka and Kerala, it said.

“Through the Digital Sakhi Project, we aim to bridge the digital divide and enable individuals, especially rural women, to unlock their full potential. We are confident that this initiative will pave the way for financial independence and inclusive growth of communities at large in Murshidabad,”  LTFH managing director and CEO Dinanath Dubhashi, said.
