Zina's story

Zina is a resident of Tup, a small village in the eastern part of Kyrgyzstan. She is 43 and married to a farmer. Together with her husband, she brings up three sons and a daughter. The oldest son entered the university and the two other sons study at school. The daughter is preschool age (under seven). Zina works as a teacher of Russian language at school. In order to earn additional money to meet the family needs, she sells dairy products. The family also cultivates agricultural products. This year they grow wheat and barley. Zina applied for the loan because she needs additional funds to purchase 200 liters of fuel, which is needed for collecting the harvest. Part of the loan will be used to pay for tractor services. In the near future, with the profits gained from selling the harvest, Zina wants to improve the family’s living conditions. --- Where Did This Loan Come From? --- This loan is brought to you by Mol Bulak Finance (MBF), a young, ambitious and socially-focused Microfinance Institution in Kyrgyzstan.
