Mrs. Gayatri D., 35 years old, resident of Kulashwor, Nepal, lives in a single (i.e., not extended) family with her husband Shyam D. and two sons whose ages are 3 and 1 respectively. Her older son is in pre-primary school.

Mr. and Mrs. D. opened a grocery shop a few years ago. They both work in their own shop, but due to the lack of business capital they can't expand their business. So in order to expand their business, Mrs. D. is requesting a loan of US$ 175. With this amount she will buy noodles, biscuits, rice, etc. for her shop. She is ready to pay back the loan on a monthly basis.

About BPW Patan

This loan was administered by Kiva's Field Partner, Patan Business and Professional Women. BPW Patan became Kiva's first Field Partner in Nepal in 2007. BPW Patan is continuing to operate after the serious earthquake which took place in Nepal in April 2015. Given the difficult circumstances borrowers and partners face post-natural disasters, these loans may therefore carry additional risk. BPW Patan operates throughout the Kathmandu Valley, offering microcredit, business training, and literacy classes to low-income women in both urban and rural areas. BPW Patan uses a group lending methodology, which not only allows women without collateral to access finance, but also provides members with a valuable support system. In addition to providing economic opportunities to its clients, BPW Patan seeks to empower Nepali women within their homes and communities. For more information about BPW Patan, visit the BPW Patan Partner Page and keep an eye out for new loans and borrower updates.
