This loan helps To purchase a dairy cow for her milk selling business.
Kariman lives in a small village of Raychenga in Falakata, West Bengal. She is 43 years old and living with her husband and three sons. Two of her sons are attending school in the same village and her elder son is engaged in her husband’s betel nut business. She has a strong determination for the development of her family.
Kariman is running a milk selling business by purchasing one cow with her small savings. She supplies milk to the villagers and to the tea stalls in a nearby town. She also sells cow dung, which is very good farm manure. To maintain a family of five members along with maintenance of her cow, the present income is insufficient, and Kamiran is facing lots of financial trouble.
As there is growing demand for milk in the locality, she plans to expand her dairy business and thus has requested a business loan from BJS, Kiva’s partner, to purchase another milch cow. She hopes this will help her to earn some extra income and save some money to provide a better education for her children. She also has a dream of developing a dairy farm in the future.
Kariman is very much thankful for her generous lenders.
