Lukuma Shg Group's story

Gorimanimali is a 53-year-old lady who lives with her husband and her 24-year-old son in a small village in Odisha, India. In the picture, the lady standing with her hand raised is Gorimanimali. She is engaged in paddy cultivation. Her husband is doing the same business. Some years ago, Gorimanimali formed a group with seven other women from her village with the group name of "Lukuma Shg". All the group members are engaged in different business activities like selling milk, vegetable cultivation, etc to alleviate their poverty. Gorimanimali is the President of this group. She motivated all the group members to form this group so they could help and support each other in their business and personal lives. Gorimanimali, along with her group, requested a loan of 80,000 INR. She will use her portion to purchase standard quality seeds and fertilizers for her paddy cultivation. She hopes to build a house for her family and she is very grateful to Kiva for this opportunity.

In this group: Gorimanimali , Subhadra, Laxmi, Putramani, Maheswari, Radhamani, Radhamani, Sambari
