A loan of $1,500 helped a member to purchase goats for breeding.

Burulai's Group's story

According to the historical facts, Kyrgyzstan was known as the land of nomads. The main occupations of the Kyrgyz people were cattle breeding and farming. Since that time, many things have been changed. Now it is the country of contrasts: contrasts between richness and poverty. In the cities people work in modern offices, but in small villages people have to lead their ancestors’ mode of life.

Burulai K. is the leader of the group. She is 52, a widow. At the present moment she has a job as the cook in the Tashkumyr professional lycee (secondary school). Twenty years ago, by personal initiative, she bought three goats, and during the years she has managed to obtain a “Niva” car. Burulai wants to get a loan to buy more goats for breeding. One of the most important aims for Burulai is to buy a new car.

Abdipatta J., 42, together with his wife, who works as a cook, is raising four daughters. His business started five years ago with cattle breeding. Besides running his business, he works as an electrician in Jalalabat. During his working years has managed to buy a foreign car. The purpose of his loan is to create household buildings.

Talantbek O., 26, is married and has two infant children. Two years ago his wife’s parents incited him to start his own business by presenting him with a cow. Besides his business he has a current job as an electrician in Jalalabat. He has been making a profit, and has managed to buy necessary domestic appliances. The purpose of his loan is to buy livestock for further breeding. Talantbek is planning to buy a house with modern conveniences.

Sabirahan J., 61, is a widow. She earns her livelihood by working as a watchman in a professional lycee. Besides her job, she breeds cattle. Planning for the future, Sabirahan wants to build a bath-house, garage and other necessary outbuildings.
