Jiydekan's Group's story

Jiydekan, 52, is the leader of this group. She is a widow and resides in a town of Toktogul. She lives with her oldest son, while her two other children live separately.

It was her daughter’s idea to try running this business, and she helped with the initial investment of 10,000 soms. It’s been ten years since the start-up, and the business is flourishing thanks to Jiydekan’s efforts. Jiydekan believes in the responsibility, ambition and hard work of her group members. She believes the loan from Kiva lenders will be a significant help for each of them. Jiydekan plans to spend her own part on the purchase of additional head of livestock.
