Indera's Group's story

Indera K. is the leader of this group. Indera and her family live in the city of Kant, only twenty minutes from the capital. Kalchaevs are an average family, and like so many others, they work day after day to feed themselves and find enjoyment in the work itself. Everyday work of simple people with an average income can often bring a feeling of contentment. A person can find joy and happiness in taking care of everyday concerns and with each day tries to apply even more effort and dedication. Indera's husband is a worker at the "Kant stroi" construction company. Indera takes care of the household and is a mother of three children. The eldest daughter is seventeen. She recently got married. Indera's son is sixteen. He is an eighth-grade student. The youngest daughter is only five, and she attends kindergarden.

In addition to doing everyday work around the house, Indera raises farm animals. She has been in the livestock breeding business ever since her father-in-law gave her three rams, so that she and her husband could breed sheep and little-by-little increase the headcount. That's exactly what Indera proceeded to do. She skilfully used the generous gift of her father-in-law, and thanks to the joint efforts of Indera, her husband, and her children, they were able to create their own flock. When the time came for her eldest daugher to get married Indera was prepared, since she already enough meat. Now Indera is seeking a loan in order to purchase a cow calf. Indera's dream is to build a big house.
