Samaritan Group (C)'s story

Featured profile member Kipsosang is a resident in a village that is ½ km from a small town. That town is 30 km from the capital town of Imphal. She and her daughter are pictured with their hands raised. She has three daughters and two sons. All her children are studying in private school. Her husband is doing private jobs and gets a very small monthly income. She belongs to Samaritan Group (C), which has only seven members.

In order to supplement the income of the family, she raises cattle, milks a cow and sells the milk. She sells in the neighboring villages and door to door. She earns a few thousand from her business. She wants to give her children a good education but due to poverty, she cannot give them the best education. Sometimes, she cannot afford to buy the textbooks and notebooks.

She wants to take an education loan from KIVA so that she can buy the study materials and pay the other necessary educational expenses for the whole session. She hopes her burden will diminish immensely and she will enlighten her kid’s life for the future. She thanks KIVA in particular and WSDS in general for providing the educational loan.
