Melisbek's story

Melisbek is 32 years old and lives with his wife and 2 children in Chatkal district. Melisbek himself works as a grade school teacher. This mountainous district with vast pastures is ideal for raising livestock. Melisbek has been farming for 12 years now, raising cows, horses, and sheep. His wages are not enough to provide for his large family, which is why he doggedly pursues expanding his farm.

He is seeking assistance from KIVA totaling 50,000 som (KGS) to increase his cattle headcount. The income will help improve his family's material well-being.
