but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to build a safe and hygienic toilet at her home.

Santosini's Group's story

The tall lady standing on the left-hand side of the photograph is Santosini. She is a resident of Jharsuguda, Odisha, India. Santosini is married and has two sons and one daughter in her care. Being a victim of rural India's sanitation crisis, Santosini does not have access to a toilet at her home. Absence of a toilet at her home forces Santosini to walk a long distance in order to attend to nature's call in isolated places. Santosini does not find this practice safe and feasible and is not willing to continue this unsafe practice anymore.

Therefore, along with her group member, she is requesting a loan amount of 30,000 INR from Kiva's partner People's Forum. She will use her portion of the loan amount to build a safe and hygienic toilet at her home so as to protect herself from harmful contagious diseases and lead a disease and hustle-free healthy life.

Santosini is in dire need of your kind help and support.
