Sarodini's story

Sarodini, 25 years, is married and lives with her family in a small village, Baroghoria, in the district of Jalpaiguri. She is a mother of three lovely daughters at this tender age. Two of them are students and read in grade five and grade three; the third one is too young for school. Sarodini has studied until tenth grade. She has a desire to get ahead in life. She has been working in the fields and supports her husband Sunil in his agricultural activities in order to provide financial support for her family.

Sarodini's husband works as a farmer, mainly growing vegetables such as potatoes, beans and gourds, and fruits such as cucumbers. He is doing very well through the performance and the experience he has gained through the years. Now Sarodini and her husband have decided to cultivate paddy to earn more profits to strengthen the family economy.

So, Sarodini is asking for financial help from BJS (Kiva’s partner). She is grateful to her lenders because with their support, she will buy supplies such as natural fertilizers and seeds for her crops. In this way, she will get a better harvest and her income will improve, thus improving her quality of life. Her goal is to expand her crops and to become a successful entrepreneur.

She aspires to save money to purchase more land in the future.
