Алтынгуль – лидер этой группы. Ей сорок три года. К этому возрасту Алтынгуль вырастила троих детей. Старшему семнадцать, среднему пятнадцать и младшей дочке десять. Все они сейчас ходят в школу. Муж Алтынгуль – врач-реаниматолог. Сама же она занимается розничной торговлей пледов, одеял, и постельных комплектов. До того, как заняться предпринимательской деятельностью, у Алтынгуль уже был опыт в торговле, в качестве продавщицы. Семь лет назад, набравшись опыту и мужества, она всё-таки рискнула вложить все свои накопления в размере шестидесяти тысяч сом (KGS) на закупку товара. За это время её деятельность позволила ей обновить мебель в доме, купить бытовую технику и увеличить поголовье скота. Сейчас Алтынгуль зарабатывает около двенадцати тысяч сом в месяц. Алтынгуль прочно встала на ноги, и намеревается дальше развивать свой бизнес. Сейчас Алтынгуль нуждается в кредите, который бы ей позволил закупить новую партию постельного белья. Она хочет купить постельные комплекты нового ассортимента, так как это увеличило бы товарооборот и привлекло большее количество покупателей. По словам Алтынгуль, всё это она делает ради того, чтобы дать высшее образование дочери. Она мечтает о том, чтобы открыть второе место бизнеса и расширить бизнес.

У Алтынгуль есть партнёры по группе:

Мээрим двадцать три. Она замужем и у неё один ребёнок. Ему всего два года и девять месяцев. Муж работает внештатным работником ГАИ. Мээрим же работает в сетевом маркетинге. Она продаёт косметику от фирмы «Мэри Кэй». Вначале она сама пользовалась косметикой этой фирмы, а впоследствии начала непосредственно сотрудничать с ними. Мээрим обратилась за кредитом с целью закупки нескольких видов теней, помад и духов.

Джумагуль пятьдесят три года. Она вдова и мать двоих детей. Младший сын находится на заработках в России, а старший живёт с ней и помогает в бизнесе. На жизнь, Джумагуль зарабатывает за счёт торговли продуктами питания. Она занимается этим уже десять лет и её месячный доход составляет около шестнадцати тысяч сомов. Джумагуль нужен кредит для того, чтобы закупить новую партию продуктов питания.

Венере сорок лет. Она замужем и у неё одна дочь. Дочке двадцать лет и она живёт отдельно от родителей. Венера уже на пенсии и подрабатывает гувернанткой. Так как отопительный сезон вот-вот начнётся, Венера решила обратиться за кредитом, чтобы закупить на зиму угля.
