A loan of $1,100 helped to build a new smithy for her husband.


Ket's story

Mrs. Ket has a small kiosk wooden house, from which she is used to selling a few fresh fruits and vegetables in the Baray district. She has been running this selling business for over eight years, earning a profit an average of US$5 to cover the daily expenses in her family. She also has a life partner in her husband who is a blacksmith. He is making around $9 each day to share the financial responsibility with Mrs. Ket.

This couple has been married for many years and is blessed with a school-aged child. Mrs. Ket’s husband wants to have his own place for starting the blacksmith business but he doesn’t have cash to make it possible. Seeing that, Mrs. Ket has been seeking a Kiva loan to build a new smithy for her husband. Mrs. Ket hopes she will increase her income to make her family to live a more comfortable life.
