Now Jayanti wants to grow chilies on her own plot of land and sell them in the local market. She came to know about BJS (Kiva’s partner) loan fund and applied for a loan to buy more chili seeds and fertilizers to grow chilies in a large amount in her own field. She understood that more production of chilies will help them to gain profit from her business. Her contribution should make her business smooth, and she will be able to give a good future to her children, including their education.
In the future, she desires to make a new poultry farm with the profit from her business.
She really thanks BJS and Kiva.
More information about this loan
This loan targets women in the financially underserved parts of India. With a largely rural population, the Jalpaiguri, Alipurduar, and Cooch Behar districts in the state of West Bengal are severely lacking in infrastructure and are three of the poorest districts in Eastern India. This loan enables female entrepreneurs to maintain their current businesses in an area that is under-developed and poorly served by financial institutions.
Important Note About This LoanDue to Indian government regulations, if you fund this loan, you will not be repaid for at least 3 years. This borrower will likely repay your loan much sooner than that, in which case, the Field Partner may re-loan your funds to help other local borrowers. We want you to be aware of this minimum 3-year waiting period and the associated risks before making a loan to Indian borrowers on Kiva. Learn More >
