Purnima's Group's story

Purnima is a married lady standing in the middle of the photograph. She hails from a small village of Jharsuguda, Odisha, India. Her husband works as a farmer on the small piece of land they possess and has an irregular source of income.

The limited source of income has tied the hands and legs of Purnima in order to build a toilet in her house. The absence of a toilet makes Purnima walk a long distance to find an open field or an isolated place in order to attend nature's call. She feels that this unsanitary practice is very dangerous, as she may get infected due to open defecation and has a risk of crime and molestation.

So, in order to restore her privacy and increase her safety and cleanliness, Purnima, along with her fellow group members, is requesting a loan amount of 45,000 INR from Kiva's partner Peoples Forum. She will use her portion of the loan amount to build a safe and clean toilet at her home so as to increase her convenience, build good health and lead a disease-free life.

Purnima is eagerly awaiting your kind help and generous support.
