About BPW Patan

This loan was administered by Kiva's Field Partner, Patan Business and Professional Women. BPW Patan became Kiva's first Field Partner in Nepal in 2007.

Given the difficult circumstances borrowers and partners face post-natural disasters, these loans may therefore carry additional risk.
