Sanaiswar Shg Group's story

This group, called "Sanaiswar SHG", consists of 11 ladies who live in a small village in the Angul district of Odisha, India. The group has applied for a loan of 165,000 INR from People's Forum (Kiva's Partner). All the members of this group are involved in different livelihood activities like animal raising, vegetable selling etc.

Damayanti, a 31-year-old married mother, has been working as a vendor selling fish and other food.

She has requested a loan to purchase more fish and other food.

Damayanti hopes to expand her business to live comfortably with her family. She, along with her group members, are very excited and grateful to Kiva and its lenders across the world for this kind help and support.
