Kompanion News is distributed in Kyrgyzstan to highlight the development work that Mercy Corps and Kompanion, Mercy Corps’ microfinance institution, undertake in the country. Through financial and development services at the household level, Kompanion seeks to address some of the country’s development challenges and contribute to the strengthening of communities through sustainable development.

This newsletter features major initiatives that focus on issues of organic agricultural and waste management practices. It also highlights a lack of knowledge in rural communities as part of a broader goal of promoting natural resources conservation and good management practices by using a science-based, ethno-ecological approach. Kompanion News tells the stories of individuals who have benefited from doing business with Kompanion, and the multi-faceted support they received, not only through microfinance loans, but also through Kompanion’s development services and initiatives focused on community development.
