Gulumkan's Group
In this Group: Gulumkan, Kulnara, Kanyshai, Durusbek
Independent entrepreneurship is the most preferred manner of doing business. It brings chances for self-development, taking risks and managing your personal finance.

Gulumkan C., 26, is a leader of this group. She resells poultry, mainly turkey. The whole idea belongs to her mother-in-law, who has had a good experience raising poultry. Peak sales of turkey were on New Year’s Eve. The revenue raised from sales helped the family obtain a nice gift of furniture for the house. Gulumkan succeeded to increase returns up to 25,000 soms and have 4,000 soms of income per month. Gulumkan’s diligence and patience have paid off. Now she applies for a loan from Kiva with the purpose of buying some more turkey for further reselling.

Additional Information

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
