Komilahon's Group's story

Komilahon I. is the leader of this group. She is 50 years old and married. Together the couple is bringing up a son, who is a 13 year old schoolboy. In 1999, after they moved to their new house, the family decided to start their own business of livestock breeding. Since then, they have been successful enough to keep on doing it. The head of the family earns additional income by working in the sphere of amateur art activities. Out of business profits they have the possibility of building a house. Komilahon wants to get a loan in order to purchase sheep for further fattening and resale. In the future the family is planning to build a stable for animal breeding.

Saerahon T. is 31 years old and married. Temporarily, she has to raise her daughter and son alone because of her husband working in Russia. In 1998, having gathered a rich cotton harvest, they purchased cattle. Since then the family's main income comes out of cattle breeding. They currently have three cows and two sheep. Earnings have made it possible to do house repairs and to buy a kitchen set. The loan purpose is to buy fodder. In the future Saerahon’s family wants to build a new house, to obtain furniture and to increase their stock of cattle.

Rahmatillo B. is 31 years old and married. Together with his wife, whose profession is a teacher, they are bringing up three children.

The loan purpose is to purchase sheep for further fattening. In the future Rahmatillo wants to finish up his house building, to buy a car and to build a farm for breeding animals.
