Luckily her children are now grown up and support Raatkan emotionally and financially.

Raatkan has invested 2000 soms in the purchase of two heads of cattle when she got married 42 years ago. Since then she has been a frequent visitor to the Zhazi cattle market where she sells cattle which has been fed lovingly for several months. Youngest sons, Alym and Asan, often help their mother. During the past years Raatkan has held very festive weddings for her sons.

She also combines agriculture with animal husbandry. She needs to hurry and purchase fertilizer because the sowing season is quickly approaching. Raatkan is very hopeful that this loan will allow her buy one ton of fertilizer.

С тех пор она – частый посетитель скотного рынка Жазы, где она продает бережно откормленный месяцами скот. Младшие сыновья Алым и Асан частенько помогают матери. За все эти годы Рааткан справила пышную свадьбу своих сыновей. Также она совмещает земледелие с основным занятием. Ей нужно поторопиться приобрести удобрения так как посевной сезон уже у порога.

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.
