Maa Mangala Shg Group's story

Sangita, aged about 20 years, is the group leader for the ten members of the group "Maa Mangala SHG" of Koraput district of Odisha state in India. Her family is composed of five members: herself, her husband, her parents-in-law and one child.

The member seated second from the left is Sangita. She is a very active lady who wants some extra income from her own efforts. She has been running a grocery cum general store in her village with the support of her husband for the last two years.

Sangita, along with the other nine members from her village, formed a group, and it is the first time they will take out a loan from People's Forum for development of their existing businesses. At present, her family income is about Rs. 5,000 per month, which is not sufficient to maintain her family.

To improve her living conditions and to earn some extra income, she wants to access a loan. From the loan, she will purchase toothpaste, shampoo, detergent, soap, rice, edible oil, biscuits, sugar, etc., as general household items for resale.

She has a dream: to build a house for her family. She is excited to have this loan, and she is very thankful to Kiva for this support.

In this group: Sangita, Sumitra, Kousalya, Kaushlya, Sabitri, Jayanti, Anjana, Tula, Tula, Gori
