Ann Maa Tarini Shg Group
Namita lives with her parents-in-law, husband and her son, aged eight years, who is in school. She is engaged in flower cultivation and flower selling. In India, the fresh flowers are used for God worship and for decoration; so Namita plucks the flowers in the early morning and sells them to a nearby market at retail as well as wholesale. She also sells the small flower plants.
Her husband is a farmer who is engaged in paddy cultivation; he helps in Namita's flower selling. Namita and her husband both take on all the family's responsibilities. Namita has a dream of making a house for her family and educating her children.
Namita, along with her group members, has requested a loan of 225,000 INR. Namita will use her portion to purchase standard-quality seeds, fertilizers and pesticides for her flowers and flower plant business.
She is really very thankful to Kiva for this opportunity

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.
