Nurjan's Group's story

The group’s leader, Nurjan, is forty-nine. She has raised three children. Her two daughters are married and live separately. Her son, 20, serves in the army.

Nurjan’s husband works as a director of rayon’s movie directorate. As for Nurjan, she is a housewife. However, even staying at home and doing her regular housewife’s duties; Nurjan manages to earn some money by selling milk. She sells up to ten liters daily, which allows her to make fifty dollars a month. It is a sizable amount of money, considering that they once invested just seventy dollars in buying a cow. And taking into account twenty years of a housewife’s life, it is largely due to these humble earnings of hers and of course her husband’s serious job that they have been able to refurnish their house, buy new domestic equipment, give their children a proper education and build a building opposite their house.

Nurjan has decided to diversify her daily routine by keeping sheep. She intends to fatten them and resell them. To do this, she is in need of a loan. Among her near-future plans is to marry off her son and build a new house.

Kamchybek, 37, is engaged in cattle breeding. He has a wife and three children. Even though his wife sells milk and thus contributes to the family’s budget, Kamchybek’s earnings are barely enough to support the whole family. He hopes to get a loan to buy materials for building a new shed.

Kalima, 57, is a mother of three children. Her spouse is a math teacher at school. Ten years ago, they bought a calf. Since then, Kalima has been selling milk. Kalima’s long-time dream has been to have a new bedroom suite. As Kalima earns a little, this loan might enable her dream to come true.

Asylkul, 52, is married. She has brought up four children. Currently she sells milk, making 85 dollars a month and otherwise stays at home. Her husband is a driver. Several years ago, she bought two lambs. After selling them Asylkul bought a calf and raised it. She needs a loan to buy five sheep.
