Jyldyzkan's Group's story

Jyldyzkan S. is the leader of the group. She is 43 and married. She has raised four sons; the first son works as a dentist and the others are students, except the youngest son.

Jyldyzkan and her husband breed cattle and chickens. Seven years ago, with the initial investment of 300 soms (about $6.50), they started to breed chickens. After fattening them, they sold the chickens to Bishkek. That time, Jyldyzkan made good money and since that moment, she has been engaged in the wholesale trade of chickens. She earns 12000 soms (about $257) per month.

With the money received from the loan, she wants to purchase hay for cattle and feed for the chickens. In the future, she wants to see her older son get wed, to expand her business and then purchase a vehicle.

Sairakan K. is the treasurer of the group. She is 44 and married. She has two daughters and a son. The first daughter works in a barber shop, the second studies at university and the son is at school. In order to make money, Sairakan sells women's clothes in the store. Her husband works as an inspector in the Ministry of Transports.

Sairakan has been selling clothes for 15 years; in this way, she makes 12000 soms (about $257) per month. Sairakan applied for the loan because she needs money to pay for her daughter’s education at university.

Jamilya A., 52, is married. She has a son and three daughters, all of whom are working. Jamilya and her husband are engaged in cattle breeding and with money received from the loan, they want to purchase barley to feed the cattle during the winter season.

Damira started with the initial investment of 20000 soms (about $429) and now she makes 4500 soms (about $96) per month. With money received from the loan, she wants to purchase barley in order to resell it later with a higher price.
