A loan helped to purchase chicks, fodder and necessary medication to expand her existing poultry business.


Champak's story

Champak is a 22-year-old lady who lives in Barasoulmari village in Falakata. She is a married woman who resides there with her family. She is blessed with a son who is a toddler. She couldn't get the opportunity to receive an education after grade eight due to the poor financial condition of her family. A lady with strong willpower and determination, Champak has struggled a lot in her life but has never lost her patience to fight.

Her husband runs a poultry farming business. Champak helps her husband in this business. They buy chicks from the market, raise them, and when they mature, they sell them at the market at a profitable price. They have been running the business for the last two years. Champak is an idealistic entrepreneur who always looks for growth. She now wants to expand their poultry farm; for that reason, she is asking for a loan from BJS (Kiva’s partner) to buy more chicks for breeding. She will also buy fodder and medicines for the chicks with the help of this loan.

Champak is confident that the expansion will surely give her enough income to maintain her family and help her save enough money for her only son’s education in the future.

She is grateful to her lenders.
