Ram Keshari's story

Ram Keshari is twenty-five years old. She is married and has one child, aged five. In 2005, she established her furniture-making business. Working seven days a week and 8 hours a day, she supports her family. She has already received and successfully repaid six loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent one to buys wood and timbers.

In the future, Ram Keshari plans to improve the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support.

In Nepal, furniture is still made the old-fashioned way. Using little more than basic hand tools, skilled artisans form raw lumber into beautifully finished pieces of furniture. With precision and an eye for detail, furniture makers produce shelves, bed frames, and cabinet sets. With the help of a Kiva loan, a furniture maker is able to increase the volume of their lumber purchases or hire additional labor. This additional leverage allows an entrepreneur to increase productivity and profitability.
