Sobirahon Ahmadalieva is 51 years old and divorced. She lives with her four children in Aravan, Kyrgyzstan. The older son works in construction, the second repairs cars, and her two daughters study at the university.

With her team, Sobirahon breeds cattle for resale after fattening. In this way she earns about $85 per month. With her microfinance loan of $1,066 she wants to purchase two bull calves for breeding.

In the future she wants to increase the number of cattle and save money to celebrate her daughter’s wedding.

We funded 10% of her loan request, which she will pay back over the course of the next 18 months.

This was one of 17 loans we issued today, concentrating on women, and lender’s groups working in agriculture. This time, the lenders were mostly from South America and Central Asia:
