Elena's Group's story

Elena, 48, is the treasurer of this group. She resides in the small town of Tokmok and has four daughters, one of whom is financially dependent on her. Elena’s family is a great example of a typical local family. She sells fruit in the market in the daytime and also delivers homemade milk products to her neighbors. Elena’s husband is a construction worker and is happy that Elena’s business has been successful, since it’s the main source of family income. The products which Elena retails vary with the season. Currently she sells raspberries and apples. The main achievement of the family, according to Elena, is the purchase of an apartment. She’s been in this business for five years. The purpose of Elena’s loan is to purchase a dairy cow, in order to increase the amount of milk products she can sell.
