A loan of $850 helped a member to purchase turkeys.


Gulumkan's Group's story

Independent entrepreneurship is the most preferred manner of doing business. It brings chances for self-development, taking risks and managing your personal finance.

Gulumkan C., 26, is a leader of this group. She resells poultry, mainly turkey. The whole idea belongs to her mother-in-law, who has had a good experience raising poultry. Peak sales of turkey were on New Year’s Eve. The revenue raised from sales helped the family obtain a nice gift of furniture for the house. Gulumkan succeeded to increase returns up to 25,000 soms and have 4,000 soms of income per month. Gulumkan’s diligence and patience have paid off. Now she applies for a loan from Kiva with the purpose of buying some more turkey for further reselling.
