Samaritan Group (B)'s story

Twelve mothers from the same school joined hands and formed the Samaritan Group (B). The tireless, determined and loving mothers strive hard to give the best to their family and kids. They live in a village and most of them are cultivators and weavers. Nenghoi, the featured borrower member for the group, appears in the photo with her son. Both of them are raising their hands.

“Sending kids to school makes me happy,” says Nenghoi. "They work harder and stronger when they score good grades." She and her husband are cultivators and generate income by selling their produce from the paddy fields and vegetable farms. The income is irregular and not reliable for monthly expenditures including school fees and other necessary expenses. At the beginning of the year, they usually take a loan from moneylenders to meet their educational expenses. Paying the monthly interest and saving money to repay the capital prevents them from paying the monthly school fees on time.

With the help of the Kiva education loan, she will pay for her son's school admission fees, textbooks & stationary, other annual examination fees and necessary expenses. She says, “Thank you so much Kiva." She shares one of the group member's delightful experiences and says that her friend is expressionless with the Kiva education loan entitlement for her twins. Her twins took the education loan and both of them are in school.

The rest of the group members will also pay for their kids' educational expenses and will repay the loan on time. They all say, “Thank-you Kiva”.

In this group: Nenghoi, Nemneng, Lt Kipsojang, Hoipi, Kimma, Lamlhing, Vahneilhing, Akip, Neichong, Lamting, Lhaineilhing, M Inaocha
