Anjali Kharat, is a bright young single parent who used to work as a peon in a school in Pune, Maharashtra. The pandemic rendered her jobless. Anjali had been long trying to save to set up her own shop of artificial jewellery and cosmetics. Anjali has now been supported with a push cart and stock for the fashion cart. She could not stop her tears on seeing her own dream cart. She was provided with items, such as bangles, clips, pins, bindis, some cosmetics and a branding kit along with initial hand holding and sales training. Ajnali is now enthusiastically involved in her dream come true enterprise, and has not let the lockdowns and existing scenarios waiver her spirit. She plans to further diversify the items, engage other community females in becoming entrepreneurs in near future.
Mythilli, a widow, lives in Idikarai district of Coimbatore. She used to work as a daily wage labourer in Pre-Covid times. Since the pandemic, her income had taken a severe hit and she had to depend on her brother for her daily expenses. With support from BharatCares and CSRBOX, Mythilli now has been empowered by setting up an Idli Dosa Paste Making centre, which she runs with support of her brother and other community members. She sells the paste by Kgs to her customers and has now built a good rapport within the community and neighbourhood too. After a few successful months at the centre, she is inspired to start a mini Idli-Dosa Centre, where people can either come to eat or take with them a parcel back home.
Selvi lives in Atthikuttai, Coimbatore. She has a family of four. She and her husband both lost their source of income due to the pandemic, leaving the family helpless and in deep, accumulating debts.

She has been provided with raw materials, machines and all other necessary items . Selvi now has set up a small workstation cum shop area in her home-courtyard.

The Jeevika Saathi initiative is a multi-stakeholder initiative by BharatCares (anchored by CSRBOX Foundation) started as a response action towards COVID-19 crises in India. The project aims to help families of the COVID 19 victims, especially women affected by the loss of a livelihoods-earner in their family, and understand the support that they require for creating a livelihoods avenue for them. In the light of the success and impact generated by this program across the country, BharatCares continued the program as Jeevika Sathi 2.0, to serve the women and their families by furnishing livelihood models.
Jeevika Saathi 2.0 focuses on creating cadre of professional women entrepreneurs by providing them seed capital for setting-up or scaling up a micro-enterprise or providing livelihoods-based training and then extending financial support for setting up an enterprise.
The support is not limited to a one time activity but is being extended till the time the business is sustained and can be scaled up. The program will be implemented in Ahmadabad, Udaipur, Pune and Noida.
