A loan of $1,000 helped a member to purchase furniture.


Anarkan's Group's story

Many small businesses are hard to start, but turn out to be a success when a person demonstrates good entrepreneurial skills, hard work and decision making abilities. As time goes on, experience helps an entrepreneur to be more effective, efficient and fast.

Anarkan A., 48, is a leader of this group. A resident of a small town Toktogul, she is married and has three children. It’s been three years since she, her husband and their younger son have been working in cattle breeding and reselling. Anarkan’s husband is a driver, and despite the fact that it takes a lot of time and energy, he still does his best to help out with the family business.

Anarkan herself is a consultant in a local central library. She has always enjoyed being surrounded by an aura of education and knowledge. She had to work part-time to save up for cattle breeding. The business was started three years ago with the purchase of three heads of cattle for 10,000 soms. It had been a lot of pressure, because much of the savings and a lot of hope was put into this business. It is paying off, bringing in 2,000 soms monthly. Anarkan says it’s not enough for some personal purchases such as furniture. She hopes to get the loan and repay it according to schedule.
