Zaryl's Group's story

The leader of the group, Zaryl, is fifty-three years old. Her parents used to breed livestock and Zaryl, from her early childhood, was familiar with this occupation. When she grew up, she got married and decided to continue in this activity of breeding livestock. She inherited her family’s occupation. For twenty years, she has been making a living in animal husbandry, raising livestock and selling milk products. Her spouse has been working as a gardener. They have two children: a daughter, 27, works in a pharmacy and a son, 7. Recently, Zaryl and her husband have made repairs to their house, built a shed and increased the total population of their livestock. Considering their monthly income of just $50, these are big achievements made. All this has been possible due to their cattle, which is their main active, as it is for anybody living in a village. Zaryl, wants to obtain a loan to buy cement and sand for building a jerry building and garage. In a very short time they are going to harvest the crops. They hope that they will be able to finish building before harvesting starts.

In addition, Venera sells milk to local villagers. Venera needs a loan to purchase goods for sale. She wants to open a small shop by her house where she would sell food items.

Orosulbu, 62, is mother to nine children. Except the youngest son, all of the other children have gotten married and live separately. Orosulbu prefers not to depend on her children and earns her livelihood by raising livestock and selling milk. Orosulbu needs a loan to buy a heifer for subsequent breeding.
