Sri Sai Shg Group's story

Laxmipriya is a 42-year-old lady who lives with her husband, parents-in-law and two children ages 15 and 10 years old in a small village in Khurda district in Odisha state, India. In the picture, the lady seated with her hand raised is Laxmipriya. She is engaged in paddy cultivation. Her husband is doing the same business.

Some years ago, Laxmipriya formed a group with seven other women from her village and named the group "Sri Sai SHG" self help group. All the group members are engaged in different business activities like selling milk, vegetable cultivation, etc to alleviate their poverty. Laxmipriya 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. Laxmipriya, along with her group, requested a loan of 120,000 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: Laxmipriya, Soudamini, Mamata, Sabita, Rajani, Sujata, Nayana, Nirupama
