Gulmira's Group's story

Gulmira is the treasurer of this group. She is 44. She and her husband, who works in the glass factory, are raising two daughters and a son. The son graduated from school this year, the older daughter is studying, and the younger daughter is preschool age (under seven).

In order to earn additional money for the family budget, Gulmira breeds livestock and resells it at a higher price after fattening. She started this business two years ago with an initial investment of 10,000 Kyrgyzstani soms (KGS). She plans to use the money received from the loan to purchase sheep to increase her number of livestock. In the future, she wants to save money to purchase a vehicle.
