Haseena's story

Haseena is a 29-year-old woman. She is married to Mansur, who is 42 years old. Mansur is a farmer. They both are illiterate and can only sign their names. They have four children going to school.

Haseena is a dedicated mother, as well as a hardworking housewife. Haseena lives in her own kaccha house, which is made of mud and straw. She works hard from dawn to dusk for her family’s economic and social condition.

Mansur grows chilies on their own plot of land and sells them to the local market. But the earnings from their business are too low. They spend their daily life very poorly. Due to lack of capital, they could not grow their business and earn much profit from the business.

Haseena came to know about Kiva’s partner, BJS, and applied for a loan to buy more good quality chili seeds and good fertilizers for growing chilies in a large scale in her own field, and sell those chilies to the market. Nowadays, there is huge demand for chilies in the market.

She understood that more production of chilies will help them to gain profit from her business. Her contribution should make her business smooth; she will be able to give a good future to her children, also including their education. She desires to build a new concrete house for her family where they can stay in a better living condition. So, she wants a loan of 15,000 INR to fulfill her dreams.
