Gulnara's Group's story

Gulnara, 54, is the leader of this group. She is a resident of the small village of Bokonbaevo. Gulnara is a mother of two kids who are in middle school. She has been raising and reselling cattle for 15 years now and very often sends cattle to the highlands in summer. The whole summer, a hired shepherd looks after the cattle carefully. Her initial investment was about 20 000 soms. Gulnara asks for a loan that will be used for the payment of a shepherd's services. “Investment in business will hopefully generate more profit that I would like to spend on finishing the construction of my house”, Gulnara says.
