Sairan Rysbaeva's Group's story

Sairan R., 49, is the leader of this group. She is a mother of four children, the oldest of whom is 19 years old. For six years, since the start-up of her business, Sairan and her children have worked hard for the major part of the daytime. The family buys young calves, breeds them and resells them at a higher price. Sairan says that the hardest part is covering all the costs related to feeding and providing healthy conditions for cattle breeding. Approximately every month, Sairan takes a head of cattle for sale to a local market. A couple of years ago she increased her stock from three heads to ten heads. The initial capital of 4,000 KGS was returned in a month of operating the business. Sairan believes in a bright future for her business, therefore decided to broaden her stock by applying for a loan from Kiva.
