Greens Konammadevi - Kiresur Group
Kamalavva owns a sheep raising farm. She also works in the fields as a daily wage worker and earns Rs 100 per day. The income is used to take care of the household expenses and for her children's education. She is now experiencing difficulty with the escalation of all daily use commodities.
She is trying to develop a sheep raising farm by borrowing a loan. Kamalavva will use her loan to buy lambs and raise them. She can make a profit of Rs 8,000 – 10,000 per lamb. Kamalavva dreams that this business will become a major source of income. She even wants to send her children to a better school.
The group consists of four other members. All are involved in the same business and are looking forward to this loan.
More information about this loan
This loan is designed to provide financing, business consulting, input facilitation, market linkage, and resource management services to marginalized agricultural laborers in rural areas of Karnataka. MicroGraam’s partnership with the non-profit organization Future Greens Samsthe has made this loan possible. By funding this loan, you are helping to bring fair market access and productivity enhancement to laborers in India through enterprise financing and support.
Important note about this loanDue 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 >
Additionally, this loan may be post-disbursed, in which case this borrower will only receive the loan after it has been 100% funded by Kiva lenders. Because it is difficult to predict when a loan will be fully funded, the disbursement date may have been estimated by the Field Partner and may be inaccurate by several days or weeks.
MicroGraam is a Bangalore-based, crowd-funding lending platform that aims to promote development and growth throughout India by providing underserved populations with access to formal loan capital.
In order to provide critical capital in remote areas of India, MicroGraam collaborates with various partners located across the country, applying a structure very similar to Kiva’s. The organizations currently provide clients -- most of whom are women -- with three types of loans: (1) agricultural loans, (2) educational loans, and (3) microenterprise loans.
Kiva lenders’ funds will enable MicroGraam to forge new partnerships with important social organizations, connecting more rural areas with critical access to capital.
