Gulmira's Group's story

Gulmira, 40, is the leader of this group. In Toktogul, a small northern town in Kyrgyzstan, Gulmira worked for almost 20 years as a medical worker saving human lives. But now she is an experienced doctor and a mother of six children. The 40-year-old widow speaks in a cheerful voice of how delighted she was to try out a sphere other than medicine. Six years ago, when she found herself to be the only breadwinner in the family, Gulmira started a new business: breeding cattle. She went to a local cattle yard and bought a young calf for 6,000 soms. After a while, the cattle grew and she resold it at a higher price. Soon the business turned out to be quite profitable, so that Gulmira received 4,000 soms of profit while still working in a hospital. The purpose of Gulmira’s loan is to purchase more cattle to resell.
