Togjan's Group's story

Togjan B. is the leader of this group. She comes from the city of Tokmok. Togjan is forty years old. She and her husband have raised two sweet daughters. Both of them go to school. To provide for the family, Togjan’s husband works as a carpenter. Everyday he has to get up bit early, as he has to travel to neighboring village outside the city. Togjan stays at home to look after the household. Many years ago, Togjan used to work. She started saving money back then, as if she felt then, that some day she would need this money. She and her husband bought a cow. Since then Togjan has stayed at home. Besides, in those days, there were little available regarding job opportunities and children were too little. Togjan gets up quite early to milk the cows. Her customers are her neighbors. They buy milk from Togjan and Togjan manages to earn up to $70 a month. During these years Togjan and her husband have managed to buy a house and a calf. Togjan wants to try raising sheep. She needs a loan to purchase sheep for feeding and resale.
