A loan of $1,175 helped a member to purchase cattle.

Zina's Group's story

Dairy farming has always been successful in Kyrgyzstan. Today, Kyrgyz milk products can honorably compete with such giants in the dairy industry as Germany and Russia. The largest consumers importing milk products from Kyrgyzstan are the neighboring Central Asian countries.

Zina I., 42, is a leader of this group. She is a cook in a local milk-producing company “Sut Bulak”. Having worked there for a long time, she understands the whole process of dairy farming. Zina claims that the dairy process begins with taking good care of the dairy cattle. Eight years ago, Zina and her husband, a farmer, decided to spend a month's salary on the purchase of cattle. Although at that time 6000 Soms were enough to purchase cattle in the market, today cattle costs a large amount of money. Zina and her group applied for a Kiva loan in order to broaden their business. Zina hopes to get a loan to buy additional cattle.
