A loan of $875 helped a member to purchase strawberries for resale.

Kiyal's Group's story

Kiyal is the leader of this group. She is 28 and divorced. She is bringing up a son who is 7 and who studies at school.

Kiyal is engaged in cultivating agricultural products. Seven years ago, with an initial investment of 10 000 KGS, she started to grow strawberries. Selling the strawberries, she earns approximately 40,000 soms during the summer season. This profit made it possible for her to purchase a fridge, a vacuum cleaner and a gas stove. These household appliances helped Kiyal to improve her living conditions.

With money received from the loan, she wants to purchase more strawberries in the local villages and then resell them in the city at the higher price.
