Jay Jagannath Group
Anuradha is one of the members of the Jay Jagannath group. She is standing on the extreme right and raised her hand in the photo. She is 29 years old and is a cheerful lady. She is living with her husband and three sons, aged nine, seven and five. She hails from a Scheduled Class family.
Anuradha is running a dairy farm with ten milking cows at her house with the help of her husband. Her husband supplies milk to the Tiffin hotels of the nearest town. He also looks after the health of the cows and takes care of them. Anuradha gets 50 liters of milk on a daily basis. From this business, she gets an income of 10,000 INR per month.
As there is growing demand for milk in the locality, every year she is adding new cows to her dairy farm. This will be the fifth loan for her from Mahashakti Foundation. She is planning to use the loan to purchase a high breed milking cow with 60,000 INR.
Anuradha has a dream to save enough money for construction of a house, giving a better education to her children and developing a good dairy farm.
Of the other four members, Mayabati, Khiradei and Arati are running general stores, and Milki is doing a fish business. The group members hope to expand and develop their businesses from the financial support from Kiva.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
