A loan of $550 helped a member to purchase hay.


Karypjan's Group's story

Karypjan is the leader of this group. She is a resident of a small village called Bokonbaevo, which is located in the Isykul region in the northeast part of Kyrgyzstan. She is 50 and married to a farmer.

Five years ago, with an initial investment of 3,000 KGS, the family started to breed livestock. They started this business because of the need for funds to meet the family’s daily needs. By reselling livestock after fattening, Karypjan earns about 5,000 KGS per month.

With money received from the loan, she wants to purchase hay to feed the livestock during the winter season. In the future she wishes to see her son wed.
