Dipika's story

Dipika is from the small village Bairatiguri in Jalpaiguri district. She is only 28 years old. She is married to Pradip. They are blessed with three children (one son and two daughters). Dipika studied till grade 7; her husband is uneducated, but they are providing education to all their children who are in grades 8, 6 and 3. The family is very friendly, close-knit, and all the family members have good relationships with one another.

Dipika's husband is engaged in agricultural business. His income is not sufficient to meet all the expenses of the family. Dipika is goal-driven, responsible and considerate. As an additional source of income for her family, she practices livestock breeding. She started this business five years back with an initial purchase of cattle. With her hard work and dedication she has increased her livestock and now she has one milk cow, three goats, and one buffalo. She gets earnings from the sale of milk and milk products (cheese, butter, curd, etc.)

For the purpose of further development of her business, Dipika has taken a loan from BJS to purchase a cow to enhance her business. The earnings from the business will strengthen her family economy and fulfill her dreams of giving her children a better education.

She is thankful to BJS and Kiva.
