Sanobarhon's Group's story

Sanobarhon A. is the leader of the group. She is 39 years old and a widow. She has a son and two daughters, all of whom are in school. Two years ago, with the initial investment of 10,000 KGS, Sanobarhon started to sell convenience goods on the market. In this way she makes approximately $110 per month.

In the future she wants to provide her children with a good education.

Saerahon S. is the treasurer of the group. She is 34 years old and married. Her husband works in Russia, so she takes care of two sons and a daughter by herself. All the children are in school.
