Babita's story

Babita is 29 years old. She is married and has one child, who is 11 years old. In 2006, she established her grocery store business. Working seven days a week and 12 hours a day, she supports her family. She has already received and successfully repaid one loan from Patan BPW, and she used her most recent one to buy grocery goods for her business. In the future, Babita plans to uplift the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support. In the Kathmandu Valley, a small grocery store, called a pasal, is an important part of the local economy. Fresh produce, milk, and staples such as rice, lentils, and flour are purchased daily for cooking in the home. Owners of small grocery stores use Kiva loans to increase their purchasing power and profit margins. By keeping their inventory strong and purchasing in larger amounts, owners of these small stores are able to increase their profitability. While a typical pasal might be no more than 100 sq. feet, they are always full of bargaining customers, incoming produce, and shrewd businesswomen.
