Tazagul's Group's story

Tazagul, 31, is the treasurer of this group. This woman lifted herself and her family out of poverty thanks to her strong character, good entrepreneurial skills and the fruitful land of Kyrgyzstan. Tazagul says that the land has always fed her and her family, especially the proceeds from cotton crops. In Central Asia cotton is called “white gold” for its enormous reserves and importance in economy. Tazagul’s relationship towards this product started in 1993, when she spent 3,000 soms on planting cotton seeds on her small piece of land. She has 18 years of farming experience. Tazagul is married to a construction worker, who contributes 5,000 soms a month towards the family's needs, and they have six young children. Currently she cultivates cotton on 0.54 hectares of land, which brings in 3,000 soms a month. The purpose of this loan is to purchase fertilizers.
