Patila Usonova's Group's story

Patila U., 66, is the leader of this group. Unfortunately, Patila is a widow. She has raised two sons and a daughter. Her first son and her daughter are married; they are employed and live with their families. Her second son went to work in Russia in order to earn money. She is a resident of Uzgen, an ancient town near Osh.

Ten years ago with an initial investment of 15,000 KGS Patila started to prepare and sell food. In this way she earns 5,000 KGS per month. With money received from the loan she wants to purchase more food in order to increase the turnover of her business. In the future Patila wants to improve the family’s living conditions.
