Baktybubu's Group's story

Baktybubu works as a nurse in the hospital; she also sells convenience goods and breeds cattle. Seven years ago she obtained a loan of 7,000 soms (approximately 150 USD) and with that money she bought different goods and resold them. In this way she now earns 3,000 soms (approximately 65 USD) per month. She applied for this loan because she needs money to purchase consumer goods in order to resell them and make some profit. In the future she wants to increase the number of her cattle.

Zhumash T. is the treasurer of the group. She is 52 and divorced. Her son is married; he helps Zhumash to sell clothes at the market.

With money received from the loan she wants to purchase a variety of clothes in order to increase the turnover of her business.

Two years ago Zamirbek, with an initial investment of 14,000 soms (approximately 305 USD), bought cattle to raise. After fattening them he sells some cattle to make money. In this way he earns 5,000 soms (approximately 110 USD) per month. He also cultivates fruits and vegetables. Now he wants to obtain a loan to pay for tractor services, to fertilize his land, and to sow potatoes. In autumn he plans to sell potatoes to make money and buy some school clothes for his children.
