Shelina's story

Thirty-six-year-old Shelina owns a farm and grows rice. Her livelihood started 10 years ago, helping her husband in managing the economy of their household. She is a married woman and has four children. Her eldest child is 19 while the youngest is 9.

She is a hard worker who is trying desperately to develop her business, but she is also a sacrificing mother who deprives herself for the sake of her children. She has requested a loan from Kiva's field partner CEVI, to purchase farming supplies like fertilizer and insecticides.

Shelina hopes to expand her business more in the future through expanding her farm, and also save for future business ventures, to become more successful.
