Basanti's Group's story

Basanti, standing to the left in the photograph, is an enterprising young woman from a small village of Nayagarh district, Odisha, India. She is a single mother and lives with her daughter and her elderly parents. She devotes herself to agriculture as her parents did. She is currently the only financial support in her family, given that her parents are now elderly. With great effort she managed to clear and prepare the agricultural land with organic fertilizer.

Basanti and her group member are requesting a loan of 30,000 INR from Kiva's partner, People's Forum. Basanti will use her portion to buy organic vegetable seeds and the organic fertilizers needed to grow a good crop, which she hopes to sell for a good price so as to uplift her living conditions.

In the future, Basanti hopes to be able to improve her house in order to give her daughter a better quality of life. Basanti is eagerly awaiting your kind help.
