SHG Associations created within the framework of the WPU Erayim’s project implemented with the support of the international organization ‘Bread for the World’ ‘The Introduction of a Combination of Traditional and Modern Approaches to Prevent the Conflict in the South of Kyrgyzstan’ are maintaining their financial stability by being engaged in small and medium-sized businesses that generate profit.

The success of such entrepreneurs in small businesses pleases all of us. The business of the family SHG ‘Dostuk’ in Mady municipality Kara-Suu district Osh oblast is an example of this. The aforementioned SHG, in order to make a profit, allocated 2,000 soms from the general fund of the group. For 1,000 soms they bought 150 pieces of tomatoes, 150 pieces of cabbage, planted them in their garden on 4 hundredths of land, and bought fertilizer for 1,000 soms. The hardworking group did their best and in the fall they got a good harvest: 70 cabbages, 400 kg of tomato. 300 kg of tomato were sold to neighbors for 20 soms per kg, for total 6,000 soms, 70 cabbages were sold for 20 soms for total 1400 soms. They made salads of remaining 100 kg of tomatoes for winter. The head of the group, Kamila Zakirova, says that they received 5,400 soms of net profit from this small business. She says that she will spend this money for food and school supplies and clothes. It should be noted that this family SHG plans to expand its small plant growing business in future.
