History

SREEJAN Livelihood Development has been promoted out of SPANDAN’s decade long experience in rural development and micro-finance activities. The idea of Livelihood Finance has been emerged from the decade long introspection of SPANDAN’s achievement in rural livelihood promotion, and extensive research in the University of Oxford by one of the co-founder.

While the project (Sreejan Livelihood Development) has just been launched in 2012, SPADAN has established its strong presence in various rural development and disaster management projects in eastern India.
