Jyldyz's Group's story

Jyldyz, the leader of this group, is thirty-one years old. She has a husband and a seven-year-old daughter. To provide for the family, her husband works as a security guard.

Her husband’s intention has always been to let Jyldyz stay at home and be a housewife, so that she could give best possible upbringing for their daughter, who has already started to go to school. When their daughter was little, Jyldyz obediently sat at home and looked after the child. After their daughter grew a little older, Jyldyz started to grow and sell strawberries. She thriftily saved her earnings and bought a cow for three hundred and ninety five dollars. Due to these contributions of hers, they have been able to build a home.

Now, Jyldyz is still a housewife, but she manages to make money selling milk as well. Her monthly income from selling milk only constitutes seventy dollars. She sees great opportunities in animal husbandry and is resolute about continuing to breed and increase her total population of livestock. Therefore, Jyldyz has applied for this loan to buy a calf to raise and coal for the winter season. She is planning to build temporary buildings and sheds for her cattle behind the house.

Jyldyz’s partners are:

Joldoshbek, 56, is a stock breeder. He is the father of five children: four sons and one daughter. All his sons work and live separately. His wife works in a hospital as a medical assistant. Joldoshbek hopes to obtain a loan to purchase several sheep to raise.

Elmira, 40, is the mother of seven children. Her eldest daughter is twenty four and her little daughter is three. Her husband has a tractor and provides ploughing services for villagers. Elmira needs a loan to buy a calf.

Saule, 40, has three children and her eldest daughter goes to college. Her husband trades in meat at a local market. Saule is a housewife and also looks after cattle and sells milk. Selling milk brings her $24 a month. Saule needs a loan to purchase sheep to raise.
