A loan of $400 helped to buy foodstuffs.


Goma's story

Goma is 60 years old. She is married and has two children aged 30 and 25. In 2000, she established her tea shop business. Working 7 days a week and 8 hours a day, she supports her family. She has already received and successfully repaid seven loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent one to buy foodstuffs for her business. In the future, Goma plans to uplift the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support. As a borrower to improve living standard extra training is needed.

Whether on the streets of Kathmandu or in the villages outside of the capital, tea shops are places of business and meeting in Nepal. Called a "chiya pasal," these tea shops make a sweet, milky tea that can be purchased for a few cents a cup. With a Kiva loan, BPW's borrowers are able to keep their store shelves stocked while increasing their profit margins by buying in greater volume.
