Seyilbubu's Group's story

Today it is quite easy to meet people who complain about current economic situations and just refuse to seek solutions for their own problems, blaming everything around.

Nevertheless, the heroes of our story would consider everything said above as just an absence of creativity. Their principle is to be creative and keep on trying.

Seyilbubu O. is the leader of this group. By the age of 52 she had raised 4 sons. Seyilbubu is divorced and she successfully overcame the ordeal of being a sole provider for the family as her eldest son is married already and started to help support his family.

As to Seyilbubu’s occupation, she offers seamstress’s services. She makes handycrafts to order. She used to produce handycrafts for domestic use only. However, afterwards she started receiving orders from her acquaintances.

This activity has allowed her to lead a relatively independent life. Her monthly income amounts to about 60 USD. She thriftily saved money and was able to send her kids to school and provide them with school supplies and clothes.

Now Seyilbubu dreams about buying new household appliances and a new sewing machine. Before doing that she needs to make new handycrafts for sale. She is in need of a loan to purchase a hundred kg of wadding and fabric.

Seyilbubu’s partners are:

Bermet M., 39, is a mother of three children. Her husband works in construction. Bermet breeds cattle. Two of her children go to school. Bermet needs a loan to buy a cow. Bermet’s dream is to provide her children with education.

Gulnaz B., 34, has three children. Her eldest son, in spite of being just sixteen, already earns his own living. The other two children go to school. Gulnaz is a seamstress. She needs a loan to purchase fabric.

Ainura E. K., 41, breeds cattle and sells milk. Her husband is a policeman. He works in a crime detection department. In his free time he helps his wife look after the cattle. Ainura hopes to obtain this loan and buy a cow for breeding.
