A loan of $875 helped a member to purchase a refrigerator.

Narynbaeva's Group's story

Generally, by means of TV channels and newspapers, we obtain an opportunity to learn how the economy is developing and how the whole country is growing. Regarding the lives of individuals, however, there is little information available. So, the only way to learn is to consider our own lives and look at the lives of the people surrounding us. The general economic state of each country is estimated from all these lives.

Our heroes (these group members) represent the multiplicity of any population. N. is fifty-five years old. She is a widow. She and her husband were happy enough, as they were endowed with six children. Most of these children are grownups, and not only make their own living, but also actively support N. in her old age.

Her eldest daughter is married and works in Afghanistan, on American military bases. Her second daughter is married and works in Russia. The other two daughters are working in the capital city of Bishkek. Two of her sons are living with her. The elder one works for the local municipality. The younger son is fifteen and goes to school.

N. keeps a cow, and does some household work. Her sons help her in their free time. N. decided to apply for this loan to buy a refrigerator.

N.’s partners:

T. Esentaeva, 39, is married and has a twelve-year-old son. Her husband works in construction. T. is occupied with raising cattle, and intends to buy more calves to increase the total population. Therefore, this loan is very important to her.

N. Imatova, 49, is a widow. She has a twenty-year-old son. He goes to college. N. is occupied with cattle breeding and this brings her a monthly income of about $110. N. needs this loan to purchase more cows or calves. She hopes that in the near future she will be able to buy her son a car.

N. Otorov, 30, is the father of two little kids. His wife stays at home with the children. N. is the sole provider. He works as a taxi driver. N. hopes to obtain this loan because he is planning to purchase calves.
