Maa Thakurani Shg Group
This is the first loan cycle for Sanai with People's Forum (Kiva’s partner). The positive impact of this loan would be that she could improve her lifestyle. She has formed a group of 13 to help and support each other in their businesses and in their personnel lives. As the leader of this Maa Thakurani Shg, she will spend her entire loan portion to buy fertilizer and pesticide and to pay a reaping fee. She hopes that she will get a better yield.

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.
