A loan of $1,150 helped a member to purchase building materials for her shop.


Venera's Group's story

Venera is the leader of this group. She is 39 and she is divorced. She brings up two sons and a daughter. The daughter studies at university and the sons go to school. Venera works in a microfinance company; in 2003 she purchased a house with a garden. Since that time she has been cultivating agricultural products. Selling some part of the harvest she earns additional 3000 soms to meet the family needs. With the profits gained from the trade she started building a shop. Venera applies for the loan because she needs additional funds to purchase building materials to finish a construction of the shop. In the future she plans to finish the construction and lease it out to diversify her sources of income and for making additional money to family budget. --- Where Did This Loan Come From? --- This loan is brought to you by Mol Bulak Finance (MBF), a young, ambitious and socially-focused Microfinance Institution in Kyrgyzstan.
