Nazgul's Group's story

Daily labor and harsh working conditions do not seem to be something to take pleasure from. However, the heroes of this story manage to enjoy their lives regardless of the working conditions, whether it is the weather or material capabilities. Nazgul is the leader of this group. She is 38 years old. Her husband works as a private builder. Nazgul has a seven-year-old son. He goes to school and studies in the first grade. Nazgul works as a nurse in the hospital. When she has free time, she sews national articles, usually made to order. She started sewing 10 years ago. She manufactured blankets and sold them in the market. Gradually she acquired customers and since then it has been her second occupation. That is how her $10 investment has turned into a permanent monthly $70 income. She advised a sister of hers to help her and now they work together, sharing the income. Thus, Nazgul was able to help her sister find an occupation and make her own living. However, Nazgul does not want to limit her opportunities and is now planning to start a new activity. She is thinking about starting cattle breeding. She hopes to obtain this loan and purchase some sheep as well as fabric for manufacturing national articles.

Kuljan is 43. She is a widow and has a daughter. To make a living she works in a hospital as a hostess – sister. Kuljan needs a loan to buy a calf for breeding.
