A loan of $1,675 helped a member to provide study materials and other necessary expenses for her daughter in pursuing her schooling, and give her a better future.


Nazareth (C) Group's story

A resident of a village in Manipur, which is one of the northeastern states in India, Lamtin is the featured profile member for the Nazareth (C) Group. She and her daughter are pictured with their hand raised. She is a widow and manages her expenses from her husband's small monthly pension.

Lamtin shares that “it is indeed a pleasure and opportunity for [a] single mother to avail this loan." Depending on meager income is difficult when you have other basic necessities to take care of. The headache of monthly fees is increased when annual exams are to be held. Paying the monthly fees on a regular basis is difficult for Lamtin. At the beginning of the year, she usually gets money from money lenders with high interest rates so that the kids don’t miss the session, which usually prevents her ability to pay the monthly fees again.

With the assistance of the Kiva education loan, Lamtin will pay for the annual expenses, textbooks, stationery, and admission fees. This is the first time that she will be able to provide all the materials required for the whole year, and she thanks Kiva for the help. The rest of the group members will also pay for their childrens' school expenses and says they are deeply honored and happy for this loan.
