Sushila's story

Sushila is 29 years old. She is married with two children, ages 10 and 9.

Many years ago, Sushila established her vegetable-farming business. Working seven days a week and four hours a day, she supports her family. She has already received and successfully repaid three loans from Patan BPW. She used her most recent loan to buy seeds and fertilizers.

In the future, Sushila plans to uplift the economic conditions of her family. She thanks you for your support.

Note: More than 70 percent of Nepal's economy is agricultural. Typically, Nepali households grow crops on small plots of terraced land. Rice (bhat), lentils (daal) and vegetables (thakari) are the staples of the Nepali diet. With a Kiva loan, BPW's borrowers are able to purchase greater amounts of seeds and fertilizers. This enables a borrower to grow more crops to be sold in the local market, allowing households to move beyond subsistence. This loan will provide much-needed cash income throughout the year.
