Ajifa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase potato seeds and fertilizers for growing potatoes.
Ajifa, age 45 years, is married and lives with her family in a rural area located in the small town Dhupguri in the district Jalpaiguri. She is a mother of one daughter who is a student of class XI (grade 11). Ajifa has an elementary education up to grade 4. Her husband, Kabir, is illiterate and can only sign his name. He is engaged in cultivation. They live in their own kachha house (mud, straw and bamboo made). Ajifa's husband earns a living through farming green vegetables in their inherited land, which he has been doing for more than 15 years. Ajifa and her husband decided to start a potato growing business. Ajifa has heard about Kiva’s partner, BJS, and applied for a loan to purchase potato seeds and fertilizers to grow potatoes and sell them to the local market, which is a very profitable business and has a great demand in the present market. This loan will enable her to extend her farmland to increase her potato farming production to upgrade her family's living conditions. Her full thanks go to BJS and Kiva.
