A loan of $200 helped to purchase potato seeds and fertilizers for the farm.

Bandhana's story

Bandhana is a 30-year-old housewife. Her husband, Bimal, is 40 years old. He is engaged in potato cultivation. Both received secondary education. Bandhana passed VI standard (Grade 6) and her husband passed XI standard (Grade 11). They have four children: three sons and one daughter. All of them are receiving education. They are in class VI (Grade 6), class IV (Grade 4), class III (Grade 3) and class I ( Grade 1). They live in the town of Maynaguri, village of Tekatuli, in Jalpaiguri District.

Due to lack of capital, they could not invest properly in their farming. That’s why their earnings are not enough. So Bandhana has applied for a loan to purchase large quantities of potato seeds and fertilizers for cultivation. The demand for potatoes is very high in the present market. They are thankful to Kiva and Belghoria Janakalyan Samity for the loan. Bandhana also hopes that the profit she will make from the business will upgrade their poor financial condition and ensure that her family members – especially her children – will have a better future.
