Burulush's Group's story

Burulush is 59 years old and is married to a farmer. She is the leader of this group. Together with her husband, Burulush has raised two sons and three daughters. Her older son is married and works in Bishkek, her second is in Russia, and her two younger daughters study at university. In order to earn money to meet their daily needs, the family cultivates agricultural products. They started this activity ten years ago with an initial investment of 8,000 KGS and now their monthly profit from selling their harvest is about 3,000 KGS.

Burulush is requesting a loan to purchase 20 liters of fuel and hire labor for the harvest. In the future, she hopes to use the profits gained with her loan to purchase cattle for breeding.
