Kabita's story

Kabita is a 37-year-old woman. She lives with her husband, Anil, and four children in her kaccha house (made of straw and mud) in the village of Magurmari at Dhupguri. She and her 40-year-old husband are illiterate. They can only sign their name. Her children attend school in class ix (grade 9) and iii (grade 3). One of them does not go to school.

Kabita is a housewife and her husband is a van driver. Throughout the day, he drives a van but his income is too low to meet the family’s daily needs. Kabita is a hardworking lady. She grows potatoes on her own plot of land to support her husband financially. Together, they cannot cover their home expenses, educational expenses and the family’s basic necessities. Kabita has heard about BJS and she applied for a loan to buy potato seeds and fertilizers to expand her potato business. She will farm more potatoes and sell them in the village market, which will help her to acquire a large amount of profit. She will be able to make her family's living conditions better than before and give her children a better future. She is thankful for BJS and Kiva.
