Siyagul's Group's story

If you ask any person about what he expects, you usually get an answer that he or she hopes to finish school, go to college, find a good job, gradually get promoted and become a boss. However, this ideal path awaits not everybody. And whoever it would be, a person has to be ready to any turn and any situation. The strong people do not expect or dream much about less probable things and just use the best use of the opportunities that life presents for them.

Siyagul is the leader of this group. Siyagul lives in Tokmok, which is located in the north of Kyrgyzstan, near the border with Kazakhstan. She is fifty-two and has a son. Her son is a grown–up and works in the local municipality. He lives separately from his parents as he has already got an accommodation for himself. Siyagul and her husband are engaged in cattle breeding. They have been doing this for the last fifteen years and have increased the total population of their livestock. Siyagul has decided to apply for a loan as she is in need of some funds to invest in purchasing 4 sheep for feeding. As the spring is approaching, it is the most suitable time to make such purchases.

Siyagul’s partners are:

Rahat is twenty-nine. Her spouse provides for the family by working as a taxi driver. Rahat is a mother of two children. She also trades in electric supplies. She has two spots at the local market. Rahat manages to earn about $570 a month. She hopes to obtain this loan and buy more electric goods.

Munara is thirty-five. She has two sons. Together with her husband, Munara keeps cattle, and on weekends they sell cattle in the market. Munara has applied for this loan as she hopes to buy some more cattle for feeding and resale.

Adylbek is forty-three. Adylbek’s wife is a saleswoman. They have three children. Adylbek owns a container and also trades in consumer goods. They hope to obtain this loan and invest it in purchasing goods.
