A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy fuel, lubricants and hay to feed to her livestock.


Duishokan's Group's story

The village of Kyzyl Suu is located on the southern shore of Lake Issyk Kul and is home to 15,000 people, most of whom make a living by farming, fishing, livestock breeding and tourism. Duishokan and her family have lived here for more than a decade. She has one son and earns a living as a farmer who cultivates a wide variety of crops. Today, she grows mostly potatoes because demand for them in Central Asia is quite high. By applying new technology, she manages to grow more potatoes every year, and this has allowed her to buy new furniture for her house. She earns about 2,000 soms a month and supplements her income by raising livestock. She is applying for this loan to buy fuel, lubricants and hay to feed to her livestock.
