Kanyshai's Group's story

Kanyshai is the leader of this group. She is 53 and, unfortunately, a widow. She has raised two sons and two daughters. The daughters are married and live separately with their families. The older son works in Russia, and the second son works as a security guard. Kanyshai works at school; she also breeds livestock. She keeps a cow and six goats. She resells livestock after fattening, which earns her an additional 2,000 KGS per month. With money received from the loan she wants to purchase five goats to increase the number of livestock she keeps. In the future Kanyshai wants to see her sons get married.
