Pushpa's story

Pushpa is a 24 -year -old married woman. She is a homemaker. Her husband, aged 37 years, is a farmer by profession and earns money by selling vegetables in their local market. Both Pushpa and her husband are illiterate, able to sign their names only. She is a mother of a son and a daughter. One of them receives education and the other one is too small to go to school. They live in Maynaguri in the district Jalpaiguri in their own Kachha house (mud and straw made).

She needs a loan from BJS (Kiva’s partner) so that she can buy seeds and fertilizers for potato cultivation and make a good profit from this business. She hopes to improve their financial condition and give a good upbringing to their children. There is a very good demand of potatoes in this area so the business will be a lucrative one. They want to become financially successful from this business. Pushpa and her husband dream to upgrade their kachha house to a brick-built house.

Her full thanks go to BJS as well as to Kiva for giving her the loan.
