Salamat's Group's story

Salamat A. is the leader of this group. She is a resident of Uzgen, a nice ancient town in the south of Kyrgyzstan. She is 54 and is married to a security guard. Together they have raised two sons, both of whom work in construction. In order to earn money, Salamat cultivates and sells agricultural products. In this way, she earns 3000 KGS per month. She hopes to obtain the loan because she needs extra money for purchasing a vehicle. In the future she wants to repair the house and celebrate her son’s wedding.
