Bermet's Group's story

Bermet J. is simultaneously a wife, mother and mother-in-law. She is 52 years old, and her only son is already married and together with his young wife lives with his parents.

The family makes their living in different ways; the head of the family is a private driver (he has his own car), the son earns money by working at a mill, his wife is an employee of the local school. Concurrently, all family members are engaged in trading and farming. Trading includes barley and wheat reselling, and their farming involves cattle breeding.

In order to increase the common family budget, Bermet wants to develop the business involving cattle breeding. To accomplish this, she plans to purchase animals for further fattening and resale. For this goal to come true, the family hopes to obtain a loan. In the future they want to purchase a new home.
