Begaim's Group's story

Begaim, 46, is a leader of this group. Living in a remote, isolated village of Mangyt in Southern Kyrgyzstan she has been working in a local medical laboratory for twelve years. She is known among the village dwellers not only as a caring medic and a mother of five children, but also as a promising farmer with extensive experience in entrepreneurship. Begaim and her husband, who is a tractor driver during the agricultural season and a construction worker the rest of the year, have two younger children, who are still financially dependent on them. The house the family is living in is fairly old and any furnishings made were helpless. Now is the time for construction of a new small-sized house, however 8 000 soms salary earned by Begaim cannot cover both family expenses and the purchase of inputs for construction. “A loan from Kiva was the best option for me and my family,” she says. Right after receiving funds from Kiva lenders, Begaim looks forward to purchase the construction materials, like cement for laying the foundation of the house.
