Svetlana's Group's story

Svetlana, 49, is the leader of this group. She is married and has four daughters, the youngest 10 years old. Svetlana has been a farmer in her home village of Tyup for five years. Farming is a seasonal occupation for her; she also works in a local cement producing plant. Svetlana’s daughters made a big contribution of start-up capital for her business, which allowed Svetlana to purchase supplies such as potato seeds. The income from sales of her agricultural products has helped finance her daughter's wedding ceremony. Svetlana has hired field workers for help. Her other major costs include fuel and fertilizers. Svetlana believes that the requested loan will cover these costs.
