Zulaika's Group's story
Zulaika A. is the leader of this group. She resides in the ancient town of Uzgen, which is located in the south of Kyrgyzstan. Zulaika is a 73 year-old widow. She has raised eight children, who are all married and live separately with their families. To make money, Zulaika cultivates sunflowers and wheat. Her daughters try to support Zulaika financially and each month they send her 5000 soms to cover her personal expenses. Zulaika applied for this loan because she needs money to purchase fertilizers for farming. In the future she wants to improve her living conditions. --- Where Did This Loan Come From? --- This loan is brought to you by Mol Bulak Finance (MBF), a young, ambitious and socially-focused microfinance Institution in Kyrgyzstan.
