A loan of $1,900 helped a member to buy more cattle to raise.

Mira Jalpetekova's Group's story

Mira, 61, leads this group. Like most of her neighbors in the village of Kochkorka, she makes a living raising cattle. In recent years, this work has become harder for her to do because of health issues, so she is grateful to have a 24-year-old son who has taken over the work and is continuing to increase the number of cattle they own. This is important because it’s easier to cover fixed and variable costs with a large herd than a small one. Mira is applying for this loan to buy more cattle and increase her family's income so that her son can buy a car and begin working as a cab driver.
