Maa Jagat Janani Shg Group's story

Muni (shown in the photo standing with her hand raised) is a 21-year-old woman who is married and has no children yet. She lives in a small village in the Koraput district of Odisha, India. Muni produces and sells vegetables in the community where she lives. She learned this line of work from her parents who dedicated themselves to this trade for many years. Muni’s work enables her to generate the necessary income for sustaining her family. She says that she enjoys her work because it is honest labor and it helps her feel useful in her community. Muni has more than two years of experience in this trade. She decided to organize a group so that she and her fellow group members could help one another and improve their standard of living.

Muni will use her loan to buy supplies (such as fertilizer) and to pay for labor so that she can maintain her vegetable plants. She dreams of increasing her vegetable cultivation so that she can improve her income. She, along with her group members, is very thankful to Kiva and its lenders across the globe for this kind help and support.

In this group: Muni, Rama, Padma, Pratima, Jamu, Radha, Dalu, Samari, Sani, Lakshmi, Brundabati, Bati, Padma, Ratani, Tula
