A loan of $1,200 helped a member to purchase cattle.


Maksuda's Group's story

Maksuda K., 59, is the leader of this group. She is a widow and resides in the small town of Toktogul on her own. Three of her kids are already grown and live separately. The business story of this lady started in 2005, when she received a loan of 60 000 soms from a local bank and bought 11 head of livestock. That became a turning point in her family budget.

Gradually she learnt more and more about care of livestock and efficient ways of selling her animals. Soon the profit helped her purchase more head of livestock. Now Maksuda’s herd is one of the largest ones in the neighborhood. A monthly income of 2 000 soms helped her repay the loan successfully. Since she has experience in taking out loans she is sure to repay the loan from Kiva, too. She requests the loan for the purchase of more head of cattle. Her biggest wish is to help her son financially in finishing the construction of his house.
