Basukinath Mahila Samuha Shg Group's story
Kabita lives with her husband and three children in Jarmundi village, Dumka District, Jharkhand. She is working in Anganwadi (preschool), but from this she doesn't get a regular income, so she also started a tailoring business. She has been in this business for six years and now wants to expand it. During wedding season, she can earn more income and now there is good demand also, but there is no financial support to expand her business. Kiva's loan can help with this problem: with the loan amount, she can buy one more sewing machine to fulfill the customers' demand and she can generate more income for her family. This will help her to give a good education to her children and secure their future. Kabita is a leader of the group called Basukinath Mahila Samuha which is managed by the local local NGO MESP with other three members. She has taken two loans from MESP to improve her business and repaid them successfully. The other members are also seeking a loan to improve their own livelihood. This is their first loan from Kiva.
