Aida's Group's story

The joy of childbirth, care of parents, family celebrations – all of these events that fulfill our lives, bring a person an enormous mental happiness and also place certain responsibilities on him. A person has qualities, such as love and care for children, ingrained in his genes. In our daily lives, we see people, who perform a very heavy labor, work at construction sites, factories, markets, withstanding difficult work conditions and at times putting forth their last effort, all with the goal of earning some sort of income. People make all of these sacrifices not because of some whim, but exclusively for the sake of their families. Thankfully, the efforts of the majority of these people do not go to waste. The heroes of this story are people with average incomes. But every day, these people put all of their efforts toward the goal of providing for their families and giving their children the most decent living, and this is how they earn public respect. Aida S. is the leader of this group. She is thirty-one years old. She is married and has two children. Both daughters attend a local school. Aida and her husband are involved in growing agricultural crops, specifically sainfoin and wheat. Also, they are involved in watering, weeding and clearing fields of weeds. Aida hopes to obtain this loan because she now needs to buy 150 liters of diesel fuel and sainfoin seeds.

Aida’s group partners are:

Zamira T. is thirty-five years old. Her husband is a member of a farm. Zamira is a mother of three children, however, the children have already grown up a bit, and Zamira helps her husband sell livestock at a market. Zamira and her husband have a monthly income of twenty thousand som. She hopes to obtain this loan in order to purchase fuel for wheat sowing.

Nurgul C. is forty-six years old. Because she lives in a village, growing agricultural crops is the primary type of business there. Nurgul raised four children and now continues to actively work, showing an example of hard work and effort for her children. She requested the loan because she needs to buy fuel.

Mairam A. is thirty-six years old. She is a mother of four children. Her husband works as a tractor driver. Because Mairam gave birth to her daughter only a year ago, she stays home with her child. Currently, Mairam decided to help her husband with the sowing and requested this loan. She hopes and believes that they will have a good harvest in the autumn.
