A loan of $1,450 helped a member to purchase more heads of cattle.

Svet Sharshekeeva's Group's story

Svet S., 51, is the leader of this group. She is married and a mother of a nine-year-old daughter. She lives in the village of Kochkor. The couple managed to make furnishings for their house and purchase some electrical appliances.

Svet breeds various types of cattle and resells them in a local market to meat-packing firms. Svet and her husband are members of a local farming group that is actively involved in promoting agriculture and cattle breeding and defending the rights of farmers.

The loan from Kiva lenders will be spent on purchasing extra heads of cattle for further breeding and reselling. Svet is very thankful to lenders, since they will pull her family out of a very tough financial state.
