A loan of $575 helped a member to purchase livestock.


Ruhizahon's Group's story

Ruhizahon is the treasurer of this group. She is 38 and married, and her husband works in Russia. She is raising a fourteen-year-old child, who studies at school. Seven years ago, with an initial investment of 3500 Kyrgyzstan soms (KGS), Ruhizahon started breeding livestock. With profits gained from reselling livestock, she was able to repair her house, purchase home appliances, and improve her living conditions.

With money received from this loan, Ruhizahon wants to purchase more livestock for breeding, fattening, and further reselling. In the future, Ruhizahon wants to provide her son with a good education.
