Nurbubu's Group's story

Nurbubu K. is the leader of this group. She is 44 and married with a daughter and a son. The son is married and lives separately with his own family and the daughter studies at school.

Nurbubu and her husband have been breeding livestock for fifteen years and every month they sell some sheep to cover the family expenses. With the money received from the loan Nurbubu wants to purchase more sheep in order to increase the number of their livestock. In the future she plans to build a shed and start repairing her house.

Taalaibek S. is 23 and divorced. In order to make money, he works as a taxi driver using his own car. Three years ago, with an initial investment of 20,000 soms, he started to breed livestock. Then he sold all the livestock and purchased his vehicle. With money received from the loan he wants to purchase auto parts to repair his car.

Farida T., 33, is married with a daughter and a son, both of whom attend school. Five years ago, with an initial investment of 8,000 soms, she bought three sheep and then resold them after fattening. In five years, Farida has increased the number of her livestock to fifteen. She applied for the loan because she wants to improve her living conditions and purchase furniture. In the future she plans to open a kiosk near the house and start selling convenience goods.

Kumushai J. is the treasurer of the group. She is 51 and married with three sons and two daughters. All the children are married and live separately with their families. Ten years ago, with an initial investment of 5,000 soms, Kumushai opened a kiosk and began to sell convenience goods. But then her husband suggested she start selling meat, because nobody in their village does that. When Kumushai started to sell meat, she noticed that the demand for meat is high enough and she makes good money. She applied for the loan because she needs to purchase sheep. In the future she plans to expand her business and then start repairing her house.
