A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy a milk cow.

Kalylova Misirat`s Group's story

Misirat is 55 years old and is married with two sons. Her husband is a pensioner and her elder son is currently a guest worker in Russia, usually sending about 250 dollars monthly.

Misirat’s family deals in livestock. They have three milk cows, one horse and a few sheep and also produce milk and milk products such as yogurt, sour cream and kefir (a fermented milk drink). For this loan she is planning to buy a milk cow. In the future she hopes to increase the number of her milk cows and produce enough milk to have supply agreements with kindergartens.

Mahpuba, 51, is married and has four children: three daughters and one son. Her elder two daughters are working in Russia as salespersons and her husband works in a tobacco plant as crew chief. She is asking for the loan to buy a milk cow.

Janysh is the youngest member of this group. He is just 26 years old and is married with one little daughter. His wife is a member of a farming collective. Janysh lives with his parents, but he hopes in near future to buy proper land and build his own house. At present time he takes an active role in family business: livestock raising and reselling. This loan will let them buy a few lambs.

Gulayim, 27, is a married young lady. Her husband currently is an assistant to a driver but, starting in early spring, he usually works as a builder. Gulayim’s family has their own land where they cultivate potatoes. This loan will be used to buy one ton of seed potatoes and fertilizer.
