Kudumbam’s friend group is a non-profit association in Sweden that is part of the international network Future Earth. We work with Kudumbam, which works to strengthen the rights of small farmers, landless agricultural workers, widows, single women and orphans. In the Friends group we are working on disseminating information about and with the collection for Kudumbam in Tamil Nadu, India.
In November 2017, Kudumbam’s friends invited Muthamil Selvi to Sweden. She works as a ‘federation coordinator’ at Kudumbam’s coastal office in Tranquebar, which means she is responsible for one of Kudumbam’s four microfinance federations. Through these, in particular, women can apply for loans to start up or continue running their businesses. Muthamil Selvi was invited to share his and Kudumbam’s work in Tamil Nadu during the “Food sovereignty week”.
