"Ann Radhamohan" is a women's self help group with 12 members. The members reside in the village of Jaripada in Odisha, India. The lady standing in the middle of the photograph with a register is Babi.

Babi is the president of the group. Babi, 41, and her husband Surendra, 45, have two children who are currently in school. For five years, this husband and wife have worked as a team selling fresh and dried fish in the market. Surendra goes to the large Chilika Lake to fish and brings home the hard-earned products of his labor, while Babi prepares dried fish to sell in the local market.

They hope to get a loan to purchase fishing net and a storage box to store and transport the fish. With the ability to fish and store larger quantities of fish, they hope to increase their profit.

Important note about this loan

Due to Indian government regulations, if you fund this loan, you will not be repaid for at least 3 years. This borrower will likely repay your loan much sooner than that, in which case, the Field Partner may re-loan your funds to help other local borrowers. We want you to be aware of this minimum 3-year waiting period and the associated risks before making a loan to Indian borrowers on Kiva. Learn More >

About People's Forum

People’s Forum is a development organization based in Odisha, India that provides affordable loan products and support services to women.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
