A loan of $1,075 helped a member to purchase a bull-calf.

Anara's Group's story

Anara A., 54, is the leader of this group. She is married to a farmer and has five grown children. Her children chose various paths in life; for instance, one is a teacher and another is a customs service officer. Left together with her husband they keep running the business that was started ten years ago. Anara feeds, waters and pastures the cattle.

The couple is very thankful to micro-crediting firms for providing such opportunities for small businesses to survive in the market and prosper. The credit of 4,000 KGS taken in 2000 from a local firm has helped her business take its first humble steps. Since then the monthly income is about $43, which allows covering all operating costs. The purpose of this loan is to purchase a bull-calf for further fattening and reselling.
