Rani's story

Rani is a 33-year-old housewife from a small village in Dhupguri. In her family, she has her husband and one son. Rani passed class VI (grade 6) and her husband studied until class VII (grade 7). They also admitted their son to school. Both of them are very ambitious and want to give a good life to their child with a good education.

Her husband is engaged in an agriculture business. They have their own land where her husband grows different vegetables and crops in different seasons and supplies those items to the wholesale market. Now, she plans to take a loan from BJS (Kiva’s partner) to invest in potato farming by buying necessary supplies like potato seeds, fertilizers, urea and more. She decided to sow potato seeds because potatoes are a year round crop and a very popular vegetable used in most Indian dishes. In the future, she dreams of extending her business by buying more land with the profits earned from the business.

Rani is very much grateful to Kiva and BJS.
