A loan of $1,600 helped a member to purchase livestock.

Gulsaara's Group's story

Gulsaara S., the treasurer of this group, is 39 and lives in Tashkomur – a small mining town in the south of Kyrgyzstan. Unfortunately, she is a widow and has two daughters, both of whom study at school.

In order to earn money, Gulsaara takes orders and sews and sells Kyrgyz national blankets, cloth and dressmaking supplies. She is also engaged in livestock breeding; reselling livestock animals after fattening them, she earns an additional 1500 soms per month. With money received from the loan, Gulsaara wants to purchase more livestock, and dreams of building a big house for her daughters in the future.
