Lalita's story

Lalita is 35 years-old. She is married and has one child, aged 6.

In 2005, she established her tailoring business. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, she supoorts her family. She has already received and successfully repaid 2 loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent to buy raw materials for her tailoring business.

In the future, Lalita plans to uplift the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support.

As a borrower, to improve living standards extra training is needed. In the Kathmandu Valley, clothing is made to order. Tailor stalls line the streets where store owners sell material and work their sewing machines. These skilled tailors make school uniforms for children as well as the the traditional women's kurta surwal and men's daura surwal. With a Kiva loan, BPW borrowers are able to purchase additional cloth material or sewing machines that will increase production and profitability.
