Yrysbu's Group's story

The economic situation and total unemployment has pushed many people to seek employment in the Russian Federation but, however promising employment opportunities in other countries might be, this journey in search of a job is an extremely risky undertaking and requires one to be very brave and careful.

Yrysbu U. is the leader of this group. She has raised four children. Her eldest daughter is 35. When she realized that her own country had little to offer in her youth, she decided to try her chances in Russia. Now she is working in Russia as a saleswoman. Yrysbu’s middle son, who is 30, also made up his mind to work in Russia. He is working in a clothing factory. Her second son, 27, works as a security guard in the biggest Kyrgyzstan market. Her younger daughter got married and now she is a housewife. As for Yrysbu’s husband, he is an actor. He works in the Naryn theater. Yrysbu raises cattle. Her son and daughter help her look after the cattle, so this activity does not present significant difficulties for Yrysbu. Eight years ago, Yrysbu bought a cow and since then has been striving to increase her cattle population. Yrysbu needs a loan to purchase sheep. She plans to save her earnings to help her grandchildren in the future. Her dream is to buy each grandchild a flat and a car.

Yrysbu’s partners:
Gulnara A., 45, is the mother of three sons. Gulnara combines two jobs. Apart from a regular job, she also breeds cattle. Gulnara hopes to obtain this loan and buy three sheep.

Jidekul T., 62, is retired. She keeps cows and sells milk. Jidekul needs this loan to buy one more cow to increase her income.

Jypargul O., 33, has a son. She works in a small factory producing sausages. Jypargul hopes to obtain this loan to buy a calf, feed it and sell it. She will use the money earned to prepare her children for school.

Aimkan A., 37, has two children. She works as an accountant and also raises cattle. Aimkan sells milk and thus has an extra source of income. Aimkan has applied for this loan to buy a calf for feeding.
