Chhabindra's story

Chhabindra is a 42-year-old married man, living in the area of Nayagarh, Odisha, India. He is the father of two sons and a daughter.

He is very hard-working and an honest person. He owns a small restaurant in which he offers various types of delicious foods. He offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner to the common people. He has been running this restaurant for 15 years, generating reasonable income for his family. He cooks delicious food for the restaurant and the people like to eat at his restaurant.

The condition of his restaurant is not good, with scratched walls, low seating arrangements, a dark room, and there is no electricity available. The customer has to face these problems and they feel hesitation to come inside the restaurant. He does not want to disappoint his valued customers.

Chhabindra wants to establish his restaurant in the form of a redecorated restaurant. He wants to paint the walls, provide electricity, and buy new plastic furniture and new crockery. Therefore, Chhabindra requested a loan from Kiva’s field partner, People's Forum, so that he can maintain his restaurant in good condition and it can be attractive.

Chhabindra thanks Kiva and appreciates the warm support from his supporters.
