Mrs. Ambica K. is 35 years old and lives in Sainbu-Bhaishapati with her husband and two children. Her husband name is Kapil K. and he works in private office. Her son is studying in grade 8 and daughter is studying in grade 5. The economic condition of her family was not good because her husband's income is not enough to fulfill family needs.
So Mrs. K. started goat farming 3 years ago. At present she has 4 goats. She sells goats’ milk in the local market daily in the morning and in the evening. Now she wants to buy a few more goats to meet the increasing demand for milk. So she is requesting for a $450 loan to buy more baby goats for her business.
About BPW Patan
This loan was administered by Kiva's Field Partner, Patan Business and Professional Women. BPW Patan became Kiva's first Field Partner in Nepal in 2007. BPW Patan is continuing to operate after the serious earthquake which took place in Nepal in April 2015. Given the difficult circumstances borrowers and partners face post-natural disasters, these loans may therefore carry additional risk. BPW Patan operates throughout the Kathmandu Valley, offering microcredit, business training, and literacy classes to low-income women in both urban and rural areas. BPW Patan uses a group lending methodology, which not only allows women without collateral to access finance, but also provides members with a valuable support system. In addition to providing economic opportunities to its clients, BPW Patan seeks to empower Nepali women within their homes and communities.
