A loan of $1,900 helped to buy livestock.


Riskul's story

Riskul is a devoted mother, who fights day after day to provide the best for her family. She got an idea to start an animal husbandry business 20 years ago in order to add her contribution to the family budget. She is raising four sons. Her husband is in Kazakhstan and sends money home every month. Riskul and her young children shear goats and sell yarn at a market. Currently, she obtained a loan to purchase livestock. She hopes to increase her livestock headcount and her capital just like last year.
