A loan of $1,500 helped a member to purchase fertilizers and potato seeds.

Tursunoi's Group's story

The Southern part of Kyrgyzstan is proud to have rich land for cultivating many crops. Agriculture is so important in the economy of the country that even the national emblem displays wheat and cotton, known as “white gold”. Along with wheat and cotton, other cultivations are being developed such as vegetables, fruits, and grains.

Tursunoi N., 53, is the leader of this group. She has been active in farming for fourteen years. At this moment she’s getting ready to prepare land to plant potato seeds. Tursunoi started the farming business fourteen years ago with wheat cultivation on land that she possessed after the privatization. She invested 890 soms into her business start-up, which was a rather significant amount at that time. Now she earns an income of 3900 soms every month. She hopes to obtain this loan to purchase fertilizers and potato seeds. Tursunoi’s sons are in Russia at this moment, and promise to assist her financially so that she will be able to repay this loan.
