Ihbal's Group's story

Ihbal is the treasurer of this group. She is 44 and together with her husband she has raised two sons. Both sons are married; the first son lives separately with his family and the second son lives with Ihbal. In order to earn money the family cultivates potatoes and apples. They also breed and sell livestock when there is a need for additional funds. Ihbal started to breed livestock twenty years ago with an initial investment of 25,000 Kyrgyzstani soms (KGS). In the beginning she kept a cow and three sheep; now she has two cows, a calf and 23 sheep. Ihbal applied for this loan because she needs money to purchase more livestock for breeding. In the future, with the profits gained from reselling livestock, she plans to purchase a vehicle for her family.
