Kuku's Group's story

This group’s leader, Kuku, has five children and one of her daughters still goes to college. Her neighbor sells bags at a market. She gave Kuku some bags and Kuku sold them. Afterwards she started her own business. Her husband works as a bus driver on the Bishkek – Tokmok route. He purchases packages and thread for her and brings them home.

Kuku needs a loan to purchase chickens. She has already prepared a roost for them. She is planning to increase their number and in future sell eggs, hens and chickens. After saving enough money she wants to raise horses since it is more profitable. Her dream is to travel all around Europe and Asia with her husband.

Kanymkul, Aigul and Maratbek are Kuku’s loan partners.

Kanymkul is forty seven. Every day she turns in five liters of milk for five soms per litre and also sews items of traditional clothing. She needs a loan to purchase some chickens in order to sell eggs. With the money earned she wants to prepare her daughter for the new academic year.

Aigul is married and has three children. She sells milk and runs her own shop next to her house. She needs a loan to buy a new fridge for selling meat and chickens. In future she plans to buy ten cows and build a big back-court.

Maratbek is married and is the father of five children. He works as a shepherd in the village and looks after his farm. He needs a loan to purchase chickens and, with the money earned, he wants to buy new school clothes for his kids. He says: “Even though I am an ordinary country man, I want to give my children a good education so that they live totally different lives from mine.”
