Ainakul's Group's story

Ainakul S. is the leader of this group. Her husband’s daily routine starts early in the morning, with taking the manure out of the shed, giving water to the cows and milking the cows. As any person living in a village area, she runs a small household and even though they live in the area which is known for its harsh winters, they are perfectly used to local weather conditions.

Ainakul is a mother of three children. All the children go to school. Her eldest son is fifteen. After school, he helps his parents look after the cattle. However, Ainakul tries not to burden her children with anything concerning housework as she believes that her children should be spared of all that to have more free time for studies. Ainakul is forty-five years old and feels herself in sufficiently good health and does not feel tiredness until evening. Now they are feeding a calf which they bought for $230. Ainakul’s dream is to give her children good education, help them get on their feet and improve her family’s living conditions. Her husband is currently a member of a farm and also works as a procurement manager of a high school. Now Ainakul needs a loan to buy four sheep for feeding and resale.

Ainakul’s partners are:

Burul S., 57, is the wife of a school worker. She has a sixteen-year-old daughter. Burul is busy with cattle that they keep at home. Burul has applied for this loan to buy more cattle.

Nazgul A., 34, is the wife of a computer science and math teacher. Nazgul has three little children and currently does not work as she has to look after the kids. Now they keep three calves and need a loan to buy some sheep.

Aibek K., 23, is married. His wife goes to college, and Aibek has to provide for both of them. Aibek works at school and wants to start a new business as an additional source of income. He hopes to obtain this loan and buy sheep for feeding. His wife will help him.
