A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy livestock to increase her family's income.


Anarkul Saypidinova’S Group's story

Anarkul S. is the leader of a group of four people. She lives in the small village of Kochkor in the very heart of Kyrgyzstan and she needs the loan to purchase livestock, which is her family's essential source of income and livelihood. By purchasing cows and several rams, she hopes to increase her income. She plans to sell their milk, meat, and wool at the local market. With the money from selling the products of her livestock, she hopes to buy necessities for her family.

Anarkul has three sons and two very sweet daughters. Her husband is a teacher at the local technical school. Because Anarkul has a large family, she works hard to feed and raise her children.

The other three members of Anarkul’s loan group are also occupied with livestock breeding. Mostly they breed sheep, cows, hens and geese. Kulsayra, Halisa, and Kulkayir are married and have children, most of whom are graduating from primary and secondary schools this year and need to continue their education. All the women hope to increase their family budget by selling the livestock products so they can pay for their children’s education.

They say that “no matter that will happen tomorrow in the world, they will be always protected, because the livestock is their only hope and support.”

In this group: Anarkul , Halisa, Anarkul, Kulsayra
