Precilla Group's story

Chinzanian is the featured borrower for Precilla Lom group and she is presented with her hand raised. She is known for her confidence and endeavour in whatever she ventures. Their group formation has completed more than two years and they still believe in one another. The group wish to continue their relationship for better or for worse. They all live in a town which is about 62 kms away from the town capital and it is also the second most populated town in the state of Manipur, which is one of the North-Eastern states in India.

Chinzanian runs a tea-stall in the village, and the stall is located at the junction point of three villages. Villagers, nearby residents and passengers waiting for public transport usually stop at the tea-stall for tea, 'puri', toast, boiled egg, and omelette. Her love for work is appreciated by the group members as well as by villagers. Household expenses are borne by her as her husband's income is mainly used for their children's education and other family expenses. She is always in need of capital money as family priorities need to be taken care of and borrowing money from money lenders is possible only at a high rate of interest.

With her Kiva loan, Chinzanian will purchase stock like wheat flour, milk powder, and liquified petroleum gas. She wants to run the business efficiently and generate more income to manage her family expenses. She thanked Kiva and WSDS for the wonderful work shown with the group and she wishes to continue working under the umbrella of Kiva and WSDS. She says, “Thank you so much, Kiva.”

The rest of the group members are also engaged in small businesses like selling chilli, 'paan-dukan' and running a variety shop.

In this group: Kholnu, Ngaikim, Chingliankim, Hoikhoneng, Chinzanian
