A loan of $1,500 helped a member to purchase cattle.

Turdukan's Group's story

A very common challenge for all entrepreneurs is inflation. Almost no one stays untouched by it. The costs of operating a business rise, which forces entrepreneurs to raise prices for products and services, which further scares away some of the customers.

Turdukan Z., 27, is a member of this group. She is single and doesn’t have any financial dependents. Her father has always been a cattle breeder so Turdukan inherited love for animals and the skills of taking care of them. When she began leading an independent lifestyle, her father recommended for her to start cattle breeding on her own. Without any hesitation Turdukan agreed and bought a couple of heads of cattle. Year by year Turdukan’s assets of cattle are growing in number. It creates a new problem for her. How to solve transportation issues? When she had few heads of cattle, that was not such a big issue, but now it requires a bigger truck and higher costs. So Turdukan turned to Mol Bulak Finance for help. Being offered a loan by Kiva, she was in heaven from happiness. It is such a great deal for her. Turdukan really hopes to get a loan which she plans to spend on buying additional cattle and a truck for transporting them to a local cattle yard.
