Khulana is a 46-year-old lady living with her husband and her two children. She runs a snacks stall in her village; she has a few years of experience in this activity. She sells snack items like samosas (fried dough stuffed with potato curry), 'Idli' (a popular recipe of south Indian origin made by steaming a batter consisting of fermented black lentils and rice), 'Wada' (lentil doughnuts) etc. in her shop.

She wants to expand her business by selling more of the items she sells now and to make a display case for her shop for the products she cooks. She says that doing so will attract more customers to her shop.

Important note about this loan

Due to Indian government regulations, if you fund this loan, you will not be repaid for at least 3 years. This borrower will likely repay your loan much sooner than that, in which case, the Field Partner may re-loan your funds to help other local borrowers. We want you to be aware of this minimum 3-year waiting period and the associated risks before making a loan to Indian borrowers on Kiva. Learn More >

About People's Forum

People’s Forum is a development organization based in Odisha, India that provides affordable loan products and support services to women.

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.
