Atyrkul's Group's story

Atyrkul K., the leader of the group, is a wonderful woman. She is self-confident, insistent and energetic: these features have really helped in her life, because now she has a lovely family and likes what she does. As with most women, she has dedicated her life to the benefit of her family. Now she is the mother of four children. Her elder daughter is a university student. Atyrkul wishes to help her daughter because she rents a flat and needs some money to live. The rest of her children are school students.

Atyrkul has a marvelous husband who works as a driver in the local administration. This friendly family has a livestock business. They sell milk and cattle, so they have already bought a new house, changed all their domestic appliances and can pay their daughter’s tuition. It is the result of 25 years of labor and some money which they had at the beginning. Now they have impressive results, because their monthly revenue is 10,000 KGS ($227). They want to buy a sheep to raise by getting a loan.

Maksatbek K. is 62. He has a wife who is a pensioner and he also has children who live separately. Even though his wife is a pensioner, she sells goods in a pavilion near their house. They started their business with 25,000 KGS ($568) and now their profit is 7,000 KGS ($160) per month. He wants to get a loan to buy foodstuffs in order to trade wholesale.

Gulan K. is 40 and is divorced. She is a state clerk. She has livestock and has land on which she plans to build a house. Now she wants to get a loan to buy a cow to extend her livestock.

Gulzada A. is 43, is married and has five children. Three of her children go to the local school, the other two are at home. They plan to send her daughter to the capital for her education because they live in a village which is located far from Bishkek. They have already built a house, so they want to buy a new carpet with the loan.
