Grace Jogul

  Grace Jogul is a retired banker living in Hubli, in Karnataka, South India. Grace works with developing “self-help” groups amongst women. These groups learn to save money in their own bank accounts, and later take small micro-loans for the purpose of beginning small businesses or paying for the education of their children. Grace has over 100 women in these groups currently.

Grace is moving from Hubli to a cluster of villages about 45 minutes away. She will begin self-help groups there as well and in addition teach women many skills such as candle-making, composting, sewing, crocheting and machine-knitting. She will share her faith as she works with these women whose lives will be forever changed for the better if they learn a skill that brings extra money into their homes.
