A loan of $275 helped to purchase a cow for her milk supply business.

Ajina's story

Ajina is a 40-year-old woman. She lives with her husband, Aijul, in a small village, Baroghariya, in Dhupguri in the district of Jalpaiguri. She is blessed with a son who works as a mason in a foreign country. She is illiterate and only knows how to sign her name, as she could not study because of the financial crisis in her family.

Her husband is a farmer. Ajina's husband has an inconsistent income, so it is very difficult to run the family smoothly. Ajina has been working in animal husbandry for many years. She is a hardworking lady and has the courage to go ahead in life. She keeps faith on her own ability.

She has a milk cow and sells milk in her neighborhood. In order to expand her business, she wants to purchase a dairy cow, and for that she needs money. So, she applied for a loan from BJS (Kiva’s partner). She will utilize the loan for purchasing another dairy cow, and she hopes to improve her milk supply business. It will provide her a steady income to tide them over rough patches and allow them to save money for their son's future.

She wants to save money to purchase a tractor in the future for her husband’s farmland.

She is thankful to her lenders, BJS and Kiva.
