Suiun's Group's story

Suiun, the leader of this group, comes from the rural town of Kant. She has a family consisting of four members, having raised two sons aged twenty three and nineteen respectively. All members of Suiun’s family have different jobs.

Suiun’s husband works at the public assistance service of Bishkek city as a leading specialist; her eldest son works in a furniture salon “Shatura” as a furniture maker; her other son works as a waiter in a café and is enrolled in college – he is getting tuition by correspondence.

Suiun works as a teacher at an elementary school. Besides that, she manages to look after some cattle. The fact is that long ago, before their marriage, Suiun’s husband already had some livestock. Suiun and her husband have made best use of their opportunities and have achieved great success in increasing the population of livestock and in improving the quality of their living. The livestock allowed them to meet various needs like providing education for their sons, buying convenience goods for the house and making repairs to their home, etc.

For the last twenty-five years, raising livestock has been an extra occupation and an extra source of income for the whole family, which every member of the family has shared concerns about. Suiun wants to continue dealing with cattle as it allows them to have quick and large amount of money whenever they need it. Therefore, she has applied for this loan to be able to buy two calves.

Suiun’s partners are Tolobek, Gulzat and Sveta:

Tolobek, 48, has three children and his wife is a teacher. To make a living, Tolobek works as a stoker at a railway station. He needs a loan to buy a calf to raise.

Gulzat, 36, has two children and her husband works in construction. Gulzat is a teacher at an elementary school. She hopes to obtain this loan to buy a milk cow.

Sveta, 41, is the mother of four children and her husband is a taxi driver. Sveta is a photographer, providing photographic services at weddings. Obtaining this loan would enable Sveta to buy a printer, which she needs in her work.
