A loan of $675 helped a member to purchase a cow.

Ainura's Group's story

The name of Ainura, 39, of Kerben village in the Jalal-Abad province of Kyrgyzstan, is well-known as a most successful progressive farmer of the district. Untiring efforts, strong management skills and patience helped her to attain this status. Being born in a typical farming family, Ainura used to help her father in land cultivation and cattle breeding.

Ten years ago, she took full control of livestock left as a family heritage and since then has never looked back.

Ainura invested 15,000 KGS in a purchase of young calves. Step by step she expanded her activities with expected returns and soon saw good economic gains from cattle reselling. Today she is a proud owner of one of the largest households in the district.

Ainura’s next step in business promotion is dairy. She plans to distribute the generated milk products to local customers. Ainura hopes that the loan from Kiva lenders will allow her buy her first cow for the new business start-up.
