A loan of $1,300 helped to purchase cattle.

Chinara's story

Chinara S., a 42-year-old married mother of three children, lives with her family in Chat-Kul village. Her husband works as a railwayman.

In rural areas, where salaries are low and often unstable, it’s very hard to live, so in order to support her family and find an additional income, Chinara started her business in cattle breeding and beet cultivating, using her initial capital of 25,000 KGS. Owing to her persistent and hardworking personality, Chinara achieved success and used the revenues to pay for her elder daughter’s education.

Currently, Chinara’s farm consists of four milk cows and still needs to be developed. For this reason, she is applying for a loan of 60,000 KGS to buy more cattle. With the revenues from the loan, she plans to give a good education to her school-going children.
