Misri's story

Misri is 42 years old. She is married and has no children. Many years ago, she established her vegetable farming business. Working seven days a week and four hours a day, she supports her family. She has already received and successfully repaid 6 loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent to buys fertilizers and seeds. In the future, Mistra plans to uplift the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support.

Over 70% of Nepal's economy is agricultural. Typically, Nepali households grow crops on small plots of terraced land. Rice (bhat), lentils (daal), and vegetables (thakari) are the staples of the Nepali diet. With a Kiva loan, BPW's borrowers are able to purchase greater amounts of seed and fertilizer. With more seeds and fertilizer, a borrower is able to grow cash crops to be sold in the local market. Such crops allow households to move beyond subsistence and provide much-needed cash income throughout the year.
