Raatkan's Group's story

Raatkan B. is 65 years old, she is a leader of this group. She is a resident of the town of Uzgen of the Osh province. Raatkan can be considered ones of those women who do not cease to surprise. Raatkan is a heroic mother. She birthed and raised seven children, but to her misfortune she became a widow just recently. Luckily her children are now grown up and support Raatkan emotionally and financially.

Raatkan has invested 2000 soms in the purchase of two heads of cattle when she got married 42 years ago. Since then she has been a frequent visitor to the Zhazi cattle market where she sells cattle which has been fed lovingly for several months. Youngest sons, Alym and Asan, often help their mother. During the past years Raatkan has held very festive weddings for her sons.

She also combines agriculture with animal husbandry. She needs to hurry and purchase fertilizer because the sowing season is quickly approaching. Raatkan is very hopeful that this loan will allow her buy one ton of fertilizer.
