Mani Nageswari Shg Group
In this Group: Rama , Menaka , Magi , Manju , Susama , Basmti , Kadambni , Mini , Puspanjali
In 2009 a group of nine women came together from a small village in Odisha and formed Mani Nageswari SHG. Puspanjali was selected as the leader of Mani Nageswari SHG. The lady sitting in the second position from right side of the photograph is Puspanjali.

Puspanjali is 32 years old, married, and living with her husband, one daughter and one son. She has been involved in a milk business for two years. She has one cow and she wants to purchase one more cow because the demand for milk is high and she is not able to supply the growing demand of the customers in the market.

She has applied for a loan to purchase a cow and fodder and also wants to repair her cattle shed. This business will help her to support her children's education. She says that this loan can help to increase her income, which will help her to purchase the study materials for her children's education and to pay her children's tuition fee.

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 >

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.
