Madina's Group's story

There's one Kyrgyz saying which says "Tell me who is your friend and I will tell you who you are." This saying is very applicable to the group of entrepreneurs headed by Madina M. because they are united for a strong friendship and mutual purposefulness.

Madina is 34 years old, she was born in the town of Uzgen in the sunny south of Kyrgyztan, a wife of a farmer and a mother of three sons. Madina lived all her life in this sunny city and agriculture has been dominant in attracting the residents and profits. For fourteen years Madina and her husband were involved in growing agriculture products from small greens and to tall Uzgen rice which is famous for it's unique taste. After the hard work in the spring and summer comes the bountiful for the farmers autumn. The fertile land of Uzgen and its warm climate bring a rich harvest. During one of these autumns the income of Madina's family had allowed them to buy a small plot of land and to build a house.

Soon the sowing season will begin and the cycle will begin again. To collect a good harvest taking good care of the land is a must. The fertilizer for such a big area of land can be very costly. Madina has asked for financial assistance from Kiva with this purpose. In the future she wants to raise her children and improve the well being of her family.

In this group: Madina, Рустамжан, Махфуза, Ферузахон
