A loan of $1,900 helped a member to purchase five lambs for breeding.


Mairamkul's Group's story

Mairamkul, 43, is the leader of this group. She was married 23 years ago and brought up a big family of five children. She resides in the village of Tup, which is hidden in the picturesque scenery of the Kyrgyz mountains. Families that live in this remote area follow the basic Kyrgyz nomadic lifestyle. Livestock is a big asset for the local farmers.

Mairamkul was gifted by her parents with a horse, which has been very helpful to her husband in the fields, and a cow to start a dairy business. Ten years of intensive work has led to 3,000 KGS monthly, and it has allowed Mairamkul to start construction on a house and shed for livestock.

Mairamkul hopes her group will be granted a loan, with her portion to be spent on purchasing five lambs for breeding. She looks forward to spending her profits on her house and a warehouse to store crops.
