Sveta's Group's story

Sveta, the 46-year-old leader of this group, comes from Jumgal, a marvelous mountainous region, where main activity is cattle breeding. She has three children. Sveta's husband operates a gas station. Her daughter, a seamstress, works in the capital. Her middle son is a plumber and the youngest son is a student.

Twenty years ago, Sveta moved from Jumgal to the Chui region, where she commenced commerce. After a while, she swapped all her goods for 40 sheep. The Chui region, being famous for its fertile land, is suitable for raising livestock. Sveta realized that cattle could be her gold mine. After increasing the total population, she exchanged a hundred sheep for a house and has been able to pay for her children’s education.

Now, Sveta sells 20 liters of milk a day. She has a stable income of $114 per month. Sveta is seeking a loan to purchase a calf for feeding and also purchase some fuel for tillage. In future, she is going to give her children education and help her middle son to buy a house. Sveta’s partners are Batma, Talaikul, Burulush and Nurjamal.

Batma, 53, is a mother of four children. She is a housewife and meets her daily needs by selling milk. She needs a loan to purchase seven sheep for feeding and resale.

Talaikul, 41, has four children. Her husband is a builder. Her parents–in–law gave her two calves as a present. Since then she has been raising livestock. She is seeking a loan to purchase three calves.

Burulush, 58, raised seven children, who live separately. Burulush makes her living by keeping hens. During summer she sells apples, plums and apricots. Burulush hopes to get a loan and purchase feed for winter: hay and barley, and to buy four sheep.

Nurjamal, 49, is a shepherd’s wife and the mother of four children. She looks after the household and sells milk. She wants to obtain a loan and buy a calf for breeding, and purchase fodder: hay and barley.
