A loan of $1,850 helped a member to buy chicks and feed to start a new poultry farm.


New Saikul Women Shg Society Group's story

“Dimpu Hotel” was a tea stall at the centre of the Saikul market and is what Veineineng, who is the featured member with the raised hand of New-Saikul Group, is well known for. Her tea stall did not accommodate a number of customers, so she took orders and served her customers by taking the tea and the toast/puri to their respective stalls/shops. Most of her customers are shop owners and vegetable vendors. Thus, these catering services are necessary for Veineineng's business success.

Because of her success, Veineineng bought a bench for her tea stall where she could accommodate her customers. But her dream was shattered when her tea stall was demolished by the government in order to construct a new market shed. Starting all over again with a new tea stall would require a rented shop, for which she needed a security deposit. So, Veineineng considered taking up poultry because she had raised a few chickens before in her yard. She used to raise pigs as well.

This Kiva loan will support her plan and hopefully it will be accomplished. She feels the urge to run a poultry farm because Veineineng believes that she can do well in poultry and expand her business. By availing a loan, she will fulfill her purpose by purchasing more chicks and starting a poultry farm. The other members of the group are engaged in weaving, selling used clothes, running a piggery, and running a paan-dukan. They are cheerful while sharing their experiences and hopeful that WSDS will continue to be a guardian angel in the days to come.
