Jayanti's story

Jayanti is a 41-year-old housewife and lives in a small village, Magurmari, in Dhupguri with her husband Harishankar, 47 years old, and their five children. Jayanti passed class VIII (grade 8) and Harishankar class XI (Grade 11). Her husband Harishankar is a farmer.

As a parent of five children, Jayanti works hard to support her family. Three of the children are in school: class IV (Grade 4), class V (Grade 5) and Class XI (Grade 11). The fourth is engaged in agriculture and the last one is a mason. They own a 'kaccha' house, made of mud and straw.

Jayanti has taken a loan to start cultivation of beans and wants to sell them in the local market. Her future plan is to upgrade their standard of living with the profit earned from the business. She is very grateful to BJS and Kiva for giving her this opportunity.
