Jumakul's Group's story

The leader of this group is Jumakul, 56 years old. For 10 years, she and her husband have been breeding livestock and trading in sheep. Then they invested about twelve dollars to purchase cattle. This investment has turned into a monthly income, which is 10 times more than the original amount. They have raised three children. The eldest daughter, 32 and the middle son, 27, both are married and live separately. The little son, 22, is a college student. He is the only one who still lives with parents. Jumakul’s husband stays at home and is busy looking after cattle, whereas Jumakul goes to the cattle market and she is the one who makes all the purchase and sale deals. They used to keep and sell sheep. Afterwards they switched to horses. Animal husbandry has appeared to be a quite profitable business for Jumakul and her husband as due to it, they have been able to give all their children a proper education and marry their daughter. In recent times, Jumakul and her husband have noticed the tendency of people to buy sheep more than they do horses, as they are cheaper. They have applied for this loan and hope that by means of this loan they will be able to invest it in purchasing and breeding sheep. They hope to increase the total population of their cattle and marry their son in the near future.
Jumakul has three partners:
Duishokan, 44, is a mother of two children. Her husband works as a taxi-driver. Duishokan stays at home and looks after cattle. She breeds a special strain of sheep called “Gissar strain”. Duishokan needs a loan to purchase one more sheep of that kind.
Zinagul, 50, and her husband work as dentists. They have four children. Zinagul is making preparations for her son’s wedding. Therefore, she has applied for this loan to buy a sheep.
Nestandarajan, 47, is a housewife. She keeps some cattle at home and sells milk. Her spouse is a schoolteacher. He teaches geography. Nestandarajan needs a loan to buy milk.
