“Presently, we are working for the empowerment of women of our country and objective is to improve their lives. Our society is credit cooperative union which is providing credit to women and others at the cheapest rate”, said Mandakini Kumar Bachoo from Mauritius who has come to attend NCCE’s three month course titled “Diploma in Cooperative Education and Development”.
Excitement has downed as participants from different states and neighboring countries have begun arriving to attend the course at the NCUI headquarters in New Delhi.
