A loan of $900 helped to purchase two cattle.


Muhtarkan's story

Muhtarkan, 58, is a resident of Tup. Unfortunately she is a widow; she has raised a daughter and a son. The daughter works in a kindergarten; she is married and lives separately with her family. The son works in construction; he lives with and takes care of his mom. Due to the high level of unemployment in Kyrgyzstan, in 1995 Muhtarkan started breeding cattle to make money. In rural areas it is the main source of income. With the loan Muhtarkan wants to purchase two cattle for breeding, fattening and reselling. In the future she wants to see her son get married.
