Aygul's Group's story

Aygul A., the leader of this group, is a model of open-mindedness and creativity. Multilevel marketing is not very popular in Kyrgyzstan although there are still a lot of well-known companies such as Faberlic, Avon and Oriflame, which promise a better future for those who have a burning desire. With 3,000 KGS ($68) in her pocket, Aygul decided to join this business. She was very ambitious and she did succeed. Now she wants to get a loan to increase her sales by buying cosmetics because the spring holiday season is coming, which is the best time to sell. Aygul is 38 and married to a farmer. They have three children: two daughters and a son. Nuura, 15, is in 8th grade at a local school. The middle daughter is in 2nd grade at the same school and the youngest is at home. Aygul, in the near future, wants to increase her turnover and send her eldest daughter to get a higher level of education.

Perisat J. is 30 and married to a farmer. She has four children: two daughters and two sons. In 1996, she and her husband sold their car for 50,000 KGS ($113) and invested all their money in livestock. Now their revenue is 6,000 KGS ($136). They would like to get a loan to buy two small cattle for resale.

Ayshirin O. is 39 and a determined woman. She is married to an engineer and has a daughter and twin sons. They all attend school. She works as an equipment operator in a shop. Her future plan is to buy a house. She would like to get a loan for housing improvement.

Rosa D. is 57 and married. She has six children, now adults, most of whom live independently. Her youngest child lives at home and attends school. Her eldest son, 24, lives with her and buys cars for spare parts. In 2009, he started with 20,000 KGS ($454) and bought a car in order to sell its spare parts. Now their revenue is 3,000 KGS ($68). They would like to get a loan to buy spare parts. In the future, they are planning to increase turnover and open an auto service.
