Orazkhan's Group
In this Group: Orazkhan , Jailoobek, Nurgul
According to statistics, women in Central Asia are two times less likely to open businesses than men. There are a number of reasons, like fear of risk and lack of knowledge about managing a business. However, Orazkhan is not among those people.

Orazkhan, 42, is the leader of this group. She knows that a good business should be profitable, both for her and society. Four years ago, while breeding and reselling cattle which brought only intermittent income, she decided to start another type of profitable business – a chicken farm. With an initial startup capital of 6,000 soms, Orazkhan purchased 60 productive chickens. After two months of keeping the poultry in warm and sanitized conditions, the hens reached a state of giving at least two eggs a day each. Besides distributing eggs to her neighbors at market price, Orazkhan usually has more left for her family’s consumption. The business helps her provide her family with nutritious food like chicken and diversify the menu. Throughout these four years, Orazkhan has been making 6,000 - 7,000 soms income per month, which is quite enough to help her husband and their daughter. The loan requested by Orazkhan will be invested into development of the business and buying more chickens.

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.
