Taalaikul's Group's story

Thirty-three year old Taailaikul, the leader of this group, is the mother of two kids. Her eldest son, 8, goes to school and the little daughter is just four. Currently Taailajkul does not work but stays at home, as she has to look after her little daughter.

As for Taailaikul’s spouse, for the last four years he has been trading in spares. He purchases cars that have been in an accident and dismantles them into spare parts for sale. He used to work as a salesman in a spare parts shop. About a year ago his parents sold their livestock, fetching $800, and bought him a container. Now, he sells spares from his own container. Not having to pay for leasing a container, has let him save enough money to buy a car. His monthly income is around $470.

Taailaikul and her husband need a loan to purchase broken down cars, for the resale of spare parts. They want to increase their turnover. As for Taailaikul, she intends to work as a seamstress in the capital.
