Jumabu's Group's story

A human being can sometimes be compared to a leaf that had fallen into a river and is now being carried by the current of life in an unknown and uncertain direction. However, reason, solid judgment, quick wit and a bit of good luck strengthen that leaf, enabling it to clear hurdles and decide independently where to stop.

Jumabu D. is this group’s leader. Fate has already tested Jumabu’s character when her husband perished. People of that advanced age usually stop fighting for a better life and prefer simply to swim with the current. Jumabu would fully deserve getting such a rest and renouncing all responsibilities. After all she has not simply been working incessantly for years, but also managed to bring up four children. She has been able to inculcate in her children the qualities which would allow them to be successful, so that they would not embarrass Jumabu, but, on the contrary, would make Jumabu proud of them. They have grown up hard-working and respectful of their [parents]. Now all her children work and are responsible for their own lives. Her only daughter is married and lives separately. With that, Jumabu has always been for her children a caring mother, first of all, and not some kind of boss or bureaucrat. In order to avoid being a burden on her children, Jumabu still continues to work and support herself. She does the kind of work she knows and loves—raising livestock. Thanks to this work they have even been able to build a house. Now Jumabu’s sense of judgment tells her not to wait until she has the means but to turn for help. She is hoping to obtain this loan and to buy a foal.

Jumabu’s partners in the group:
Sultanbek B. is the father of three children. He is 51 years old. In order to support his family, he raises cattle, and his wife sells milk. Sultanbek requested a loan in order to buy a dairy cow.

Mariya N. is 46 years old. She is the mother of five children. Her oldest son is 25 years old, and her youngest daughter is 13. Mariya raises livestock, and her children help her. She wants to use her loan to buy a calf.

Alymkan B. is 46 years old. She is taking her three children. The older children, a son and a daughter, go to college and also work. Alymkan raises cattle and sells milk. If she obtains her loan, she would like to buy a calf for fattening and later resale.
