Abiya's story

Abiya is a 42-year-old woman from the remote village of Baroghoria in the district of Jalpaiguri. She lives there in her own house with her husband and two sons. She is married to Kabir. One of her sons is a truck driver and the other runs a tea stall. Both Abiya and her husband are illiterate and can only sign their names.

Abiya can be characterized as an exemplary wife and mother who strives untiringly to offer her family well being and sustenance.

She has had a grocery shop for more than 10 years in her own house. She is a very gentle and polite lady so she always has good sales. Now she wants to keep varied grocery items in her shop to satisfy the desires and needs of her customers, which will keep her business profitable and ensure profit.

She has taken a loan from BJS (Kiva’s partner) to buy necessary commodities for her shop such as rice, dal, oil, salt, sugar etc. She hopes it will enable her to earn additional profit from this new step in her business.

She is very much thankful to BJS and Kiva.
