A loan of $200 helped to purchase a dairy cow for her dairy business.

Rupali's story

Rupali is a very young and energetic entrepreneur from Maynaguri. She is only 23 years old and married with two lovely daughters. Her daughters are too young for school. She attended school until the seventh standard and then got married. She lives in the countryside far from a major city with her husband and daughters. They have a mud, bamboo and straw made house that lacks the basic facilities like water, electricity etc.

Rupali's husband Biplab, 24 years old, works on his farmland and grows seasonable vegetables. But his income is so scant that it is hardly sufficient for their family's basic needs. So for the last five years, Rupali has been engaged in a cattle breeding business. She has extensive experience in the field of animal husbandry. Her father used to be involved in the same activity. Initially, she started the business with one dairy cow and sold the cow milk in her neighborhood, whose residents are her main clients.

Now, with her own efforts, she has established her own business. Now she wants to grow her business. For this reason, she has turned to BJS and asked for a loan from them. She plans to buy one more dairy cow to improve her milk supply business. This will help her to increase her sales, which will ultimately generate more income for her. With the profit, she wants to reach her goal of providing a better education to her daughters.

She greatly appreciates the financial help of her lenders BJS and Kiva.
