Gulzat's Group's story

Gulzat A. is the leader of the group. She is 32 and married. She has two daughters and two sons. The older son and the older daughter are at school, but the other children are not yet. Gulzat's husband is the driver of an excavating machine and he earns 12000 soms per month.

Three years ago with that money, Gulzat purchased livestock and then resold the livestock at a higher price. She made 15000 soms and since that moment, she has been breeding livestock. With money received from the loan, she wants to purchase sheep for breeding.

Gulzat is pregnant and in the near future they will have another child, so they are planning to start building a new house.

Eliza T., 24, is married. She has two children, both of them are preschool age (under 7). Two years ago, with the initial investment of 30000 soms, Eliza and her husband started to breed livestock. Selling some livestock after fattening, they make 5000 soms per month. That profit made it possible for them to improve their living conditions and purchase a new fridge. With money received from the loan, Eliza wants to purchase sheep in order to increase the number of livestock they have. In the future, she is planning to start repairing her house.

Ularkan J. is the treasurer of the group. She is 55 and a widow. She has raised nine children; two of them are at school and live with Ularkan. Two years ago, with the initial investment of 10000 soms, Ularkan started to purchase fruits and vegetables in the village and then resell them at the market at a higher price. In this way, she makes 10000 soms per month. With money received from the loan, she wants to purchase a variety of fruits and vegetables in order to increase the turnover of her business.

Gulmira T., 35, is married. She has two daughters and two sons. The older daughter and the older son are at school and the other children are not yet. Gulmira is engaged in cattle breeding; she resells cattle after fattening at a higher price. In this way, she makes 10000 soms per month. Her husband works as a driver, and when he is free, he helps his wife with her activity. Gulmira applied for the loan because she needs money to finish building her house. In the future, she wants to build a shop and start selling convenience goods.
