Maira's Group's story

Sooner or later almost every one of us begins to think of further life plans. Every individual has his or her own. Education, family, job, hobby — the most common plans of a human being. No matter what country you live in, what race or nationality you belong to, what kind of hobby you like to spend your free time with, you want to live a worthy life. Unfortunately, unstable political and economical situations are not the best circumstances in which to build a worthwhile life. Nevertheless, people by their very nature are trying to improve their way of life.

Maira K. has the status of group leader. She is 58, married, and has two adult daughters. Her husband’s profession is hard, but not so well-paid; he is a teacher. He is already on a pension, but still has to support his family. The purpose of this loan is to buy building material for major repairs to the house. In order to repay the loan, Maira’s husband will use his pension money and his salary. In the future, both parents want to give their daughters in marriage to good men and organize both of their weddings.
