Ulmashon's Group's story

Ulmashon is the leader of this group. She is 23 and married to a constructor, whose monthly salary is about 5,000 KGS. She and her husband have a newborn baby. Two years ago with an initial investment of 6,000 KGS, Ulmashon started to sell fruits and vegetables. From this business she earns about 250 KGS per day. This profit enabled her to improve the living conditions of her family; she repaired the house and purchased furniture. With money received from this loan she wants to purchase more fruits and vegetables for trade. With the profits gained from her business, Ulmashon wants to purchase a cow for breeding in the near future.
