Project MKA

To help combat growing poverty rates amongst farmers and peasants across Talas, the Talas Farmers’ Union partnered with the micro-credit organization, MKA, to begin providing in-house agricultural based micro-credit loans to qualified individuals and small businesses with well thought out ideas.  TFU actively promotes the available loans to the public, often holding seminars and consultations on how to apply and how to create business plans.  The number of agricultural based micro-credit loans awarded to Talas farmers and peasants have increased annually since project inception in 2003. As a result, thousands have been mobilized and employed, hundreds of new businesses started, and a plethora of new services are now available that were not before.
