Behind every successful society there is always, at least one idealist. This is true in case of this society also. Shri Vasantrao Tatyasaheb Mohite, founder Chairman of Shri Hanuman Udhyog Samuh at Yalgud, Tal.: Hatkanangale, Dist.: Kolhapur, is a driving force behind this co-operative society also. He conceived the idea for organizing a society for upliftment of poor and needy people of Yalgud and surrounding area, to give them remunerative occupation, so that these people improve their living standard.

Yalgud is a village, as backward as any other way side, village in India. It's population is around 9000. It is about 27 km east of Kolhapur, situated between Kagal & Ichalkarangi road, located at Maharashtra & Karnataka boundary and near the left back of Dudhaganga river, which is the demarkation line in the east between Maharashtra & Karnataka state. Naturally both the languages, namely Marathi and Kannada are spoken by most of the villagers, on either side of the boundary. In fact the very name "YALGUD" is a Kannada word "Yal" means Seven - numerical denomination and "Gud" means Hillock. So Yalgud means a land of seven hillocks. That is how Yalgud is geographically situated, at the foot, of seven hillocks. River Dudhaganga is flowing at the out skirts of agricultural land of Yalgud, about 3 km away from proper Yalgud village. Yalgud village 3 km away from Hupari called Silver city cause of making famous silver ornaments. These silver ornament, particularly, silver chains, worn on the ladies ankles are marketed throughout India as well as exported abroad. Water from Dudhaganga is utilized for irrigating Yalgud's agricultural land while water from Panchaganga river is utilized for drinking purpose. Thus, Yalgud gets the advantages of both the rivers.
