A loan of $900 helped a member to start building a house.


Ainur's Group's story

T. Ainur is the leader of this group. She is forty-five years old and has three children. Her two sons are sixteen and fifteen and her daughter is eleven. For Ainur’s family, living in a village does seem to be a burden, unlike many other villagers who leave villages because of an absence of opportunities for improving one’s living standards.

Ainur’s husband has been working as a physics teacher in a local school. As for Ainur, she has been engaged in cattle breeding and increasing the total population of their livestock. Their stable income from raising the livestock for resale, is $90 a month. Ainur’s children have already learned the aspects of this activity and actively provide help when needed after school.

Ainur and her husband are good examples of the category of people who prefer to make the best use of the conditions and opportunities available instead of blaming others for not being able to live properly. Recently they made a decision to make some changes to their house as well. They decided to build a new house and a separate bathroom. This is not an easy task and they need quite a lot of financial support. Therefore Ainur strongly hopes to obtain this loan to start building.

Ainur’s partners:

R. Lira, 51, has three children. Her husband works as a security guard and he also farms land. Lira is a housewife. Besides that, she keeps some cattle at home and thus helps her husband have an extra source of family income. Lira needs a loan to buy fuel, seed potatoes and wheat seeds for the family farm.

I. Baktygul, 53, has four children and her husband is a private farmer. Baktygul is a language schoolteacher; she teaches both Russian and Kyrgyz. They also own a piece of land and now need a loan to buy fuel for farming.

Z. Aftandil, 24, is single. He wants to get married and buy a car but he knows that to achieve this, he needs to work hard and earn a sufficient amount of money. He has already started saving money. Now he farms land and needs a loan to buy fuel and seed potatoes.
