Jibek's story

This wonderful woman is Jibek. She is 63 years old and married with four children. She has a secondary-level education. Jibek has been raising livestock and growing crops since 2001, and this is her family's primary source of income. Thanks to her hard work and her husband's help on the farm, she now has 4 cows, 20 sheep and 5 horses, as well as a 0.49-hectare plot of land where she grows organic clover.

In order to further develop her business, Jibek has asked Kiva to support her with a loan of 250,000 som. She will use the money to buy cattle to increase her income from organic meat sales. The profit from the loan will help Jibek to expand her business by buying more pedigree cattle.
