Chanta Devi's story

Chanta Devi is 40 years old. She is married and has 2 children aged 19 and 16. In 2001, she established her furniture making business. Working 6 days a week and 8 hours a day, she supoorts her family. She has already received and successfully repaid 2 loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent one to buys wood and timber. In the future, Chanta Devi plans to uplift 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.
