Upol's Group's story

Upol A., 63, is a leader of this group. She and the members of her group are the residents of the small town of Tup, the main activity of which is cattle breeding and raising crops. Despite her age, she stays energetic and enthusiastic with her business. Upol’s husband relies on his pension, so he also makes contributions in feeding, raising and selling the cattle. Upol is happy with her accomplishments, since she’s a proud mother of five kids and a respected veteran in cattle breeding. Her youngest son gains experience from her and learns all techniques very quickly. The roots of this business appeared in 2005 when the family sold all their crops from the land and spent the proceeds on purchasing cattle. For now, a monthly profit from the business is 4,000 soms. Upol’s final goal is to reach 15 heads of cattle in her household. She’s confidently stepping towards the goal. With the loan from Kiva, she plans to purchase two cattle.
