Maa Lankeswari Shg Group's story
Santosini is a responsible lady, age 41, who lives with her husband and one son. She is the main source of income for her family because her husband is a daily laborer and he makes less. She sells bangles, nail polish, gold-plated jewelry items, clips, hair accessories, beads, etc., in her ladies' novelty store. She has been in the business of selling cosmetics and jewelry for the past eight years. She is applying for a loan to buy more jewelry and beauty products such as makeup, lipsticks and creams in order to improve and enrich the business through the availability of more variety of products to meet customer demand. This loan will help to improve her sales and enable her to offer a new product line to her customers. Her objective is to expand the business and include new products such as clothing in her existing business, and save enough for her family's future with the increased revenues from the increased sales supported by the variety in products. Santosini, along with her group, has applied for this loan, and she will use her portion to purchase gold-plated jewelry and beauty products for her ladies' novelty store. She is very happy and thankful to Kiva for this great support.
