Laxmi's story

Laxmi is 24 years old. She is married and has one child, aged four. In 2008, Laxmi established her poultry business. Working seven days a week and four hours a day, she supports her family.

Laxmi has already received and successfully repaid two loans from Patan BPW. She used her most recent loan to buy small chickens for her business. In the future, Laxmi plans to improve the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support.

In the Kathmandu Valley, raising poultry for eggs and meat is a very profitable business. Kiva loans are used to purchase chicks, food, and necessary medicine to keep the chickens healthy. Once matured, the chickens are sold at small butcher shops or in the many open-air markets throughout the valley.
