As a group, they have supported and encouraged each other to save and improve their financial circumstances. Tilottama is the president of the group and is standing with her hand raised in the photo. Tilottama, 28, lives with her husband and their two school-aged children in a humble home. Tilottama’s husband works as a fisherman in Lakes. To help supplement the income for their family, Tilottama prepares and dries fish to sell in the village market. A loan from Kiva will help her purchase fishing net and a storage box to sell more fish and increase her profit.

She is very happy and grateful to Kiva for this kind help and support.
