A loan of $175 helped to buy chickens for her business.


Surja Maya's story

Surja Maya is 59 years old. She is married and has two children, aged 35 and 30. In 2000, she established her butcher shop business. Working seven days a week and 10 hours a day, she supports her family. She has already received and successfully repaid two loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent loan to buy chickens for her shop. In the future, Surja Maya plans to improve the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support. In Nepal, the meat is always fresh. In small stalls along busy roads, open-air butcher shops sell chicken, goat, and water buffalo by the kilo. The stalls are piled high with product and sales are brisk. With the help of a Kiva loan, BPW's borrowers are able to purchase additional stock at better prices. This increase in purchasing volume creates greater profit margins for the borrower.
