Jay Matadi, a Joint Liability Group, was formed in the year 2010 by four active women of Bolangir town of Bolangir district in Odisha, India with a purpose to take loans from Mahashakti Foundation to enhance their business to add some extra income to their families. Anandini is one of the members of this group, standing on the extreme left with raised hand. She is a very active and confident lady. She is 33 years of old and lives with her husband and two children who are continuing their primary education.

Anandini has been running a fast food center in Bolangir town with the help of her husband for last 20 years. Her fast food center starts at 3.00 pm and continues up to 9.00 pm where mainly she sells 'chart' (a fast food item). Her preparation is very popular in the town. To help her in the business she has engaged three workers. Anandini earns a monthly income of 7000 INR.

This is the 2nd loan from Mahashakti Foundation and Anandini wants to purchase stock of oil, dough, potatoes, gram (lentils) etc. to save money from frequent transporting and price hikes due to rate fluctuation.

Important note about this loan

About Mahashakti Foundation

Mahashakti Foundation is a public charitable trust that provides microfinance and development services in the low-income state of Odisha. Operating in the poorest region of India, the organization strives to serve rural communities, tribal groups and others living on less than USD$1 a day. In addition to microcredit, it also provides micro-savings and micro-insurance products, as well as business development, health, water and sanitation, and food security services.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
