A loan of $1,500 helped a member to purchase fabrics and materials.

Elmira's Group's story

Elmira A., who is a resident of Tokmok, is the leader of this four-member group loan. A 39-year-old widow, Elmira has two sons, one in school and the other yet too young to attend.

A year ago, with an initial investment of 10000 soms, Elmira started to take orders and sew Kyrgyz national blankets. Doing this, she makes 8000 soms per month, profits that have made possible the purchase of furniture and improvement of the living conditions. She hopes to obtain the loan because she needs money to purchase fabrics and materials for sewing. In the near future, Elmira plans to purchase a washing machine.
