Sasubasuli Shg Group's story

From a small village in Jajepur district, Odisha, India, nine women stepped out and formed a self-help group named "Sasubasuli SHG" to earn some money from different activities to support their families. All the group members are engaged in different business activities like paddy cultivation, vegetable cultivation, etc.

Laxmipriya, age 33, is a married lady with one daughter. The lady standing with her hand raised is Laxmipriya. To earn her living, she has been planting rice and farming for 12 years. Her farming earns an income of 3,500 INR per month.

Now, she is the group leader of this group. They are seeking their first loan with People's Forum (Kiva’s partner) for 135,000 INR. As the group leader, she is going to use her loan portion to buy rice seeds and fertilizer for her farmland. She hopes her rice will provide a good yield for her to earn a profit to support her business.

In this group: Laxmipriya, Mamina, Urmila, Ranjita, Jamunamani, Sabitri, Laxmi, Arati, Annapurna
