Jumadil I. is a 51-year-old farmer, who lives in the north of Kyrgyzstan. He is married and has three children. He was a watchman at the telecommunication plant and his wife worked as a cleaner, but both of them were not well-paid. For this reason, Jumadil decided to engage in cattle breeding with the initial capital of 8,000 Kyrgyz Soms.
Owing to his persistent and hardworking personality, Jumadil managed to multiply his investments. With the revenues, he managed to buy a used car and renovate his house. At present, his farm has two milk cows, 10 sheep and 12 goats. Jumadil plans to use this loan of 100,000 Kyrgyz Soms to broaden the number of cattle for fattening and reselling. In future, Jumadil plans to build a barn for the cattle.
