Ganphiu Group's story

Mary is the featured borrower with her hand raised on the extreme left. She belongs to Ganphiu Group. All group members reside in a village that is about 40 kms away from the main capital of Manipur that is also one of the states in northeastern India.

With the previous loan they have taken from WSDS all group members expanded their businesses. Mary also filled her shop with rice, various types of cereals, edible oil, soaps, shampoo and fast moving items demanded from time to time.

She came forward for the next loan cycle from Kiva and WSDS to improve and expand her shop. She expects more new customers by increasing the quantity and the items demanded by the existing customers. This will expand her business and increase the profit and make loan repayment easier. She is so happy because she not only helps herself to support her family but also all the surrounding customers with her service.

The other nine members of the group do business like vegetable selling, ginger plantation, yam plantation, weaving, banana business, chilli business and tailoring to support their families. She, along with her team, expects a long association and prays to God for Kiva and WSDS for their success in whatever they do.

In this group: Mary, Martha, Mery, Merina, Lily, Mercy, Gaikhangchunliu, Neihailu, Peijaigailu, Lungningailu
