Aichurek's Group's story

Aichurek is the leader of this group. She is 60 and unfortunately she is a widow. She has raised two sons. The older son is a carpenter and the second son works in Russia.

Ten years ago with an initial investment of 10,000 KGS, Aichurek started cultivating and selling agricultural products. In this way she earns about 5,000 KGS per month. She mostly cultivates potatoes and apples.

With money received from the loan, Aichurek plans to purchase apples in order to resell them at a higher price to gain some profit.
