Ryskan's Group's story

Ryskan is the leader of this group. She is 25 and married to a farmer. Together with her husband, she brings up a daughter and a son. Both children are preschool age (under seven). Ten years ago, Ryskan sold vegetables which were grown in her garden. She saved 5,000 soms and with that money she purchased cattle for breeding. In order to earn money to meet the family needs, Ryskan breeds cattle for resale at a higher price. With money from this loan, she wants to purchase a calf for breeding. In the future, Ryskan wants to save money to purchase a vehicle.
