Chinar T. is forty-two years old and married. She has seven children: four daughters and three sons. Her elder two sons breed cattle and the other children go to school. Her husband and her sons are buying, fattening and reselling cattle at a higher price. Her husband started his cattle breeding business ten years ago with an initial investment of 10,000 KGS. He has bred cattle since he was a child. Due to the successful functioning of their business, her husband provides for all the members of the family, and they built a new house and bought a car.

Kunduz K. is twenty-seven and married. She has a son who is four years old. Her husband combines farming and cattle breeding. In 2004, her husband bought cattle for 10,000 KGS. Since that time he has bred cattle. Also during appropriate seasons he farms. Right now, he is planting wheat and barley. They have already achieved good results, and with the help of the profits received they provide for all their family members. She is applying for a loan in order to buy more cattle for breeding. They are planning to expand both in cattle breeding and in agriculture but they need support in the form of a loan for the purchase of more cattle.

Kenzhegul T. is thirty-three and married. She has four daughters who are fifteen, thirteen, seven and five years old. Her husband combines his work as a taxi driver and cattle breeding. They started cattle breeding ten years ago with an initial investment of 5,000 KGS. The work of cattle breeding is done by her husband because he has bred cattle since he was a child.

This would give them an opportunity to grow and expand their cattle breeding business.
