Tinneihat is an outgoing and fun-loving girl who loves to travel and meeting new people. She is pictured with her mother. Tinneihat is 20 years old and lives with her family of nine, including her parents, in Imphal, which is in the Northeast State of India. She has three elder sisters and three younger sisters. Everyone in the locality knows them as the seven wonder sisters, says Tinneihat. Tinneihat’s mother is a homemaker whereas her father is a pensioner who earns only 7,000 INR per month. In spite of their situation, they both strive to give their children good education and help them as much as possible.

Ever since she was small, Tinneihat admired and loves a career in aviation, as this profession provides the exciting experience of flying, visiting different places and countries, and interacting with so many people from different walks of life. The good pay package is another attraction. Like every girl child used to do, Tinneihat would dress up like an airlines hostess and act like one of them, says Tinneihat, with a smile.

Tinneihat is indeed very glad that she’s able to achieve her dream career. However, she is also worried because the resources of her household are very low and she has to pay the mandatory security deposit to the airlines to get enroll in the cabin crew training. Therefore, it is vital for her to get financial assistance, without which she will not be able to accomplish her dreams or to give financial support to her parents and her siblings, as she wishes to help them once she gets a stable and lucrative job. She earnestly hopes to count on Kiva and thanks lenders in advance for their generosity and for favoring her wish to develop herself and accomplish her dreams.

About WSDS-Initiate
WSDS-Initiate is an inclusive nonprofit that works with women across all tribes and minority communities in Manipur, located in the remote northeast region of India. Most organizations concentrate their work in the plains region of Manipur, but WSDS is among the very few organizations serving women in the isolated hills. Political unrest and frequent economic blockades in the area make it very difficult to provide services, resulting in Manipur having the lowest penetration of financial services in the country.
