Zhanyl B. is 50 years old, married, and has two sons. Her younger son’s family lives with her, and not so long ago she became the grandmother of a beautiful girl. Zhanyl worked at the kindergarten for a long time and was the best friend to her pupils.
In order to find an additional means of subsistence for her family, she engaged in the cattle breeding business. Starting with the initial capital of 4,000 KGS, she managed to earn about $129 in a month. Today her farm, which consists of two milk cows, a bull calf and five sheep, still needs to be developed.
For this reason, Zhanyl has applied for a loan of 100,000 KGS for the purchase of one bull calf and fifteen lambs. With the revenues, she plans to reconstruct a barn for her cattle. In future, she dreams of buying a flat in Karabalta town.
