Reba's story

Reba is a housewife from Maynaguri who has studied up to class IX (grade 9). Her husband has been running a small business for many years. Their two sons are now students in classes IX (grade 9) and X (grade 10).

Her husband’s business is not going well nowadays and that is why she is perplexed about her children’s education. She also fails to manage the family expenses. For this reason she decided to start a new business which would maybe uplift them out of their critical condition, so she applied for a loan from BJS (Kiva’s partner) to purchase different ingredients like oil, potatoes, ghee, spices, etc. for making fast foods such as pakora, cutlets, fried pastries, potato chips, etc. to sell in her local area because there is great demand for fast food in her locality. Each and every person in her locality relishes her fast food items as there is no other fast food centre in their locality and there is a great demand for the product; that is why Reba earns a lot of profit from this business. Moreover, she can extend her business with the profit she makes and can give her family a smooth life.

Reba expresses her heartiest thanks to BJS and Kiva for their kind financial support.
