Nurgul's Group's story

Nurgul is the leader of this group. She is 45 and, unfortunately, she is a widow. She brings up two daughters and two sons; the daughters work in a sewing workshop in Bishkek, the first son studies at university, and the second son is at school. Nurgul works as a cleaner; six years ago her parents presented her a calf, and since that time she has also been engaged in cattle breeding. At the moment she keeps four cattle, and every day she sells about 7-8 liters of milk. In this way she earns about 2000 soms per month. With the money received from the loan, she wants to purchase a calf for breeding, fattening, and further reselling. In the near future, Nurgul plans to increase the number of her cattle up to ten, and with the profits gained from reselling cattle, she wants to repair her house. --- 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.
