Gulkan's Group's story

Gulkan, 54, is the leader of this group. She resides in the warm southern town of Kadamjai. Gulkan’s husband is a worker in a local chemical plant, while she is a medical worker. She devotes all of her life to medicine and saving human lives. On summer vacations, Gulkan runs a small business selling fruits and vegetables that she grows in the orchard. The assortment is wide from apples to carrots. All three of Gulkan’s grown children help her to manage the garden and distribute the products. The initial capital was 5 000 soms and brings a monthly profit of 2 000 soms now. Gulkan plans to stay involved in this trade for the whole summer and start livestock breeding later. In order to do this, she asks Kiva lenders for financial assistance. The funds from loan will be spent on the purchase of two heads of livestock.
