A loan of $1,400 helped a member to purchase building materials.

Alfiya's Group's story

Alfiya B., 41, is married to a private taxi-driver. The couple is raising four children, all of whom are pupils in school.

Traditionally, almost all villagers breed livestock. Alfiya’s family follows this tradition and currently keeps five cows and 15 sheep. Ten years ago, they purchased three sheep and began to fatten them for resale. Currently, the family is being supported financially by Alfiya’s husband. Sometimes in order to get extra money, they have to sell one of their animals.

The family is planning to purchase an allotment for building a house, thus they need to purchase building materials.
