Gulpotkan's Group's story

Gulpotkan E. leads this loan group. She is 57 years old, married to a pensioner and is the mother of six children, three daughters and three sons. All of her children are married and most of them live independently with their own families (under Kyrgyz traditions the youngest son continues to live with his parents). Seven years ago, Gulpotkan went into business breeding livestock, reselling animals for a good price after spending a lot of time feeding and caring for them. She and her husband now earn 2,000 soms a month from their business and would like to buy a vehicle for their son to use. She will use her portion of this loan to buy more livestock to breed.
