Shiva Shakti Shg Group's story

Shiva Shakti Self Help Group consists of eleven women from a village of Kalahandi district in Odisha. They formed a group to help themselves to share their problems and to solve their problems among themselves.

One of them is Gitanjali, who was selected as the president of Shiva Shakti Self Help Group. The lady standing first from the right side in the photo is Gitanjali. Gitanjali is 47 years old and is staying with her husband and her two children, who are in schooling. She hopes to see them as successful persons in their lives.

She has a few acres of land in her village, and she is using her land in vegetable and paddy cultivation. Her husband is supporting her in this activity. She and her group have requested this loan. Her portion will help her to purchase the required resources for vegetable cultivation - vegetable plants, seeds, fertilizers, and insecticides, and to cover operational expenses like labour charges.

Gitanjali and her group are very happy with this loan and thankful to Kiva for this kind support.
