Sathi's story

Sathi is a rural married woman of 27 years, the mother of a daughter. She lives with her daughter and husband, 32 years old, in the small town Maynaguri in the district Jalpaiguri. They have their own semi-pacca house (brick-built wall and straw roof). She received education up to class X (Grade 10) in their village. Her only daughter reads in class II (Grade 2). Sathi's husband attended school up to class VIII (Grade 8). He is a car driver by profession. He is very sincere and hard-working. Sathi is also trying hard to give financial support to help her family. She wants to provide sustenance for her family. She has applied for a loan from BJS (Kiva’s partner). She wants to buy a cow to start a milk supply business. She wants to sell milk from door to door in her locality. She hopes this business will be a profitable one as there is a great demand for milk in the present market. Her main interest is to continue fighting for the betterment of her family and give her daughter a better education. She hopes to upgrade their house to a pacca one (concrete made). Her full thanks go to BJS and Kiva
