Lila's story

Lila is 38 years old. She is married and has two children aged 21 and 17. Many years ago, she established her vegetable business. Working seven days a week and four hours a day, she supoorts her family. She has already received and successfully repaid six loans from Patan BPW and used her most recent one to buy chickens and goats for her business. In the future, Lila plans to raise the economic condition of her family. She thanks you for your support. Over 70% of Nepal's economy is agricultural. Typically, Nepali households grow crops on small plots of terraced land. Rice (bhat), lentils (daal), and vegetables (thakari) are the staples of the Nepali diet. With a Kiva loan, BPW's borrowers are able to purchase greater amounts of seed and fertilizer. With more seeds and fertilizer, a borrower is able to grow cash crops to be sold in the local market. Such crops allow households to move beyond subsistence and provide much-needed cash income throughout the year.
