Mina's story

Mina is 46 years old. She is married, a housewife and a mother of four children (one son and three daughters). All her daughters are married. Their only son works as a laborer in a factory. Mina attended school until grade eight but could not continue further studies due to poverty. She lives with her son and husband Nikhil, 50 years old, in the small village of Khagrabari in Jalpaiguri district.

Mina's husband is a street hawker. He sells daily necessities like tubs, mugs, pitchers, cups etc. and earns for the household. As he has grown old and feeble, it is a very tedious job for him. As a result, his income can barely cover his family's household.

Mina is responsible, goal-driven and considerate. She wants to do some income-generating work on her own. She wants to start a milk supply business with the purchase of one dairy cow. She expects to get earnings by selling milk to her neighbors.

With this aim, she has asked for financial help from BJS to purchase a cow. She hopes the earnings from the business will bring financial sustenance for her family and give them a smooth life. She thanks BJS and Kiva.
