Chiengkonpang F Group
Since a solar lighting system is powered by the sun’s renewable energy; the system is energy neutral and an absolutely clean source of illumination. Therefore, Tingzanieng and the rest of the group members want to purchase solar lighting devices which are a cleaner alternative. However, these women cannot afford them as they entail finances out of their reach. So, they are looking for support in the form of a loan amounting to 182,595 INR to buy solar lighting devices each costing 12,173 INR. Your help will not only bring an end to their daily ordeal with the noxious fumes but also engender additional savings to live a better life.
More information about this loan
This loan is part of WSDS' effort to promote solar energy and make it affordable for low-income households. It will be used to purchase a solar home lighting system and targets some of the most rural and remote parts of northeast India.

By funding this loan, you are helping to provide lighting to households while also promoting green energy products and helping individuals reduce their energy expenses.
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 >
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.
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.
