A loan of $2,400 helped a member to purchase seeds and fertilizers for her paddy cultivation.

Parbati Shg Group's story

Indira is a 52-year-old lady who lives with her husband and two children in a small village in Odisha, India. In the picture, the lady standing second from the left is Indira. She is engaged in paddy cultivation. Her husband is doing the same business.

Some years ago, Indira joined a group with ten other women from her village with the group name of "Parbati Self Help Group". All the group members are engaged in different business activities such as selling milk, vegetable cultivation, etc. to alleviate their poverty. Indira is an active member of this group. She motivated all the group members to form this group so they could help and support each other in their businesses and personal lives.

Indira, along with her group, requested a loan of 143,000 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: Susila, Padma, Sneha, Dula, Mithila, Gita, Damayanti, Kalabati, Indira, Banita, Gundicha
