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

Namita's story

Namita, who is 47 years of age, is a very hardworking entrepreneur who practices livestock farming. She is from Maynaguri, which is a small town in the district of Jalpaiguri. Namita is married and has three adorable sons that she really adores so much and will do anything to protect them and secure their future.

Cattle farming has always been one of the most enjoyable activities in Namita's life, and she has been doing farming for a few years. Through profits from cattle farming, she has managed to take care of her family. She has a dairy cow, and she supplies milk to her locality. She could not attend to a high grade in school, as her parents could not afford it. Her husband, Tapan, aged 55 years, is a car driver by profession. As he does not have any fixed income, Namita is now the main breadwinner for the family.

Their area has high demand for milk and milk products, so being an enterprising woman, Namita wants to take advantage of this ready market and start a milk products business (such as curds, butter and cheese); that is why she is kindly requesting a loan from Kiva’s partner BJS to buy a dairy cow.

Through the loan, Namita is going to deliver the promise of elevating the quality of life, and also, she is going to secure the future of her children by providing them with a better education.

Namita's plan is to accumulate more profits and be able to purchase a car with them.

She is highly obliged to her lenders.
