Nazgul's Group's story

The lives of people are filled with useful experiences. They are diverse like people themselves. Different people have different ordeals. It is believed that strong people have more difficult ordeals. However, steadfastness and hope for better always help people to live through them. Besides, there are always people around us who are there to support us in difficult moments. Those are our parents, closest relatives and friends.

The leader of this group, Nazgul, a 28-year-old young woman, deserves to be called a strong woman. The ordeal that awaited her was divorce after a few years of happy marriage. The expectations of cozy and agreeable married life did not come true. Instead, after divorce actually took place, she was left with two children to raise and uncertainty about life in the future. Nazgul wisely viewed things in a sensible light. She talked to her parents and they agreed to help her look after her five–year-old son and three–year-old daughter while Nazgul is at work as a hospital nurse. Her parents have also given her some sheep for breeding and so animal husbandry became Nazgul’s second occupation. Although she only earns about $95 per month, she can always sell some of her cattle to satisfy her family's needs. Nazgul wants to increase the total population of her cattle and is therefore requesting a loan to buy a calf.

There are three partners in Nazgul’s group:

Asigul, 60, has raised four children and is married to a vice principal of music college. Asigul is a housewife who keeps some cattle and needs a loan to buy a cow.

Burulbu, 59, has one son, a boxing trainer. and a retired husband. For a living, Burulbu raises livestock and sells milk. She hopes to obtain a loan to buy a cow.

Kuljamal, 56, a mother of five children, is married to a shepherd. Kuljamal stays at home and looks after cattle and sells milk. She has applied for this loan to buy a milk cow.
