A loan of $800 helped a member to purchase a calf.


Jumabubu's Group's story

Jumabubu, 50, is the leader of this group. She is a resident of Kant, a small town near Bishkek (capital of Kyrgyzstan). She and her husband have raised three daughters. The oldest daughter works in a sewing workshop, the second in a café, and the youngest daughter studies at school.

Five years ago Jumabubu got a loan of 30,000 soms. She spent it on purchasing cattle. Since then she has been breeding cattle and reselling it after fattening. In this way she earns 15,000 soms per month. This profit made it possible for her to improve her living conditions and repay that loan successfully. At the moment, Jumabubu needs additional funds to increase the number of cattle. With money received from the loan, she wants to purchase a bull-calf for breeding. In the future, Jumabubu wants to see all her daughters get married.
