Tashanova Umsun's Group's story

This story comes to you from a small village located on the border of two countries: Kyrgyztan and Uzbekistan. During these difficult times several people have decided to come together for each other's support with one goal to make their lives better and to create new possibilities. They are receiving a loan at MCC MBF for the third time and have shown to be outstanding borrowers and good people.

Let's begin the introduction of the group members starting with the leader, as usual, who has brought everyone together.

Umsun is 50 years old, she is married and is raising two children - a son and a daughter. Her son is finishing his senior year in the secondary school, and her daughter is already a first year student in college majoring in foreign languages. Her husband works as a veterinarian in the village board. She is a Kyrgyz language teacher in the local school. Besides everything her family has a cattle breeding business, a vegetable sowing business and also a retail business selling household products and other goods from their home store. The loan will be used to buy a calf for growing.

They started this business in 1990. At this time they have three milk cows, one horse, 50 chickens and fifteen sheep. They plan to use this loan to buy hay stock and fodder for the livestock.
