Jayanti's story

Jayanti is a 29-year-old woman. She is married to Subodh, who is 36 years old and a farmer by profession. They both have studied up to grade 5. They have two children studying in school. Jayanti is a dedicated mother as well as a hardworking housewife. Jayanti lives in her own kaccha house, which is made of mud and straw. She works hard from dawn to dusk to upgrade her family’s economic and social condition.

Now Jayanti wants to grow chilies on her own plot of land and sell them in the local market. She came to know about BJS (Kiva’s partner) loan fund and applied for a loan to buy more chili seeds and fertilizers to grow chilies in a large amount in her own field. She understood that more production of chilies will help them to gain profit from her business. Her contribution should make her business smooth, and she will be able to give a good future to her children, including their education.

In the future, she desires to make a new poultry farm with the profit from her business.

She really thanks BJS and Kiva.
