A loan of $1,375 helped a member to buy sheep and a calf.

Jyparkul's Group's story

Jyparkul lives on the outskirts of the city of Balykchi, which means “a fisherman”. To many people, the life in this rural area does not seem to be that attractive. There is an extremely high rate of unemployment in this city. Therefore, many young people have left the city to look for a job in the capital. Nevertheless, Jyparkul and her husband have chosen to stay. Instead of moving to the capital and starting from zero, they have preferred to create opportunities where other people have already dropped their hands.

Jyparkul is 42. She and her husband are happy parents as they have four sons. Their sons' ages range from as young as 5 to 21. Previously they had ten sheep. They invested their savings thriftily and were able to buy cows and calves. After that, they bought horses and started to trade in cattle. Now, the livestock they have include two horses, three cows, four calves and 30 sheep. Due to this business, they have been able to marry their son. Their two elder sons help the parents look after the cattle. So Jyparkul and her husband do not have any difficulties looking after that many cattle. Their monthly income from trading in livestock is up to $230. This is a good income. Jyparkul decided to apply for a loan to purchase seven or eight sheep and a calf. She wants to increase the total population of their livestock in preparation for marrying off the rest of her sons.
