Guljan's Group's story

N. Guljan is the leader of this group. She comes from Karabalta, a small city to the west of Bishkek. Guljan and her husband achieved all their possessions through hard work and perseverance. They know that everything in life comes gradually. Guljan is forty-seven years old. Her husband works as a procurement manager in a local high school.

Guljan is a housewife but she is also engaged in raising livestock and sells milk. Twenty-five years ago, she inherited some cattle from her parents. She had a choice to sell everything and have a regular job, but instead she decided to increase what had been left to her. During these years she has accomplished that. Moreover, through raising cattle she has been able to raise five beautiful children and build a house, and furnish it.

The children have grown. The eldest daughter is married and lives separately. One of the sons works in Russia. One of the daughters goes to college, and the rest of the children go to school. Guljan has applied for this loan to purchase coal for the rest of the winter season. She is going to complete the building of the house, buy a car, and increase the total population of her livestock.
