A loan of $1,000 helped a member to purchase livestock.

Burulbu's Group's story

Burulbu is the leader of this group. She is 59 and married to a man who is a retiree. Six years ago, with an initial investment of 30,000 soms, the family started to breed livestock. Reselling livestock after fattening it, the family earns 13,000 soms per month. This profit made them able to build a house in the village and to open a kiosk.

With money received from the loan Burulbu wants to purchase more livestock for breeding, fattening and further reselling. In the future with the profits gained from reselling livestock, Burulbu wants to purchase a vehicle.
