Chubak's story

Chubak S. is a 40-year-old farmer. He has very tight-knit family with five children. His wife works as a nurse at the local hospital. In order to support his family, Chubak decided to start his own business in cattle breeding and land cultivating with wheat, barley and alfalfa. Owing to his persistent, hardworking personality, Chubak, with starting capital of 10000 KGS, managed to multiply his investments and now earns about 3000 KGS in a month. Also, in seasons of harvesting, he works as a truck driver and helps his countrymen to gather their crops. Chubak plans to use the loan of 100000 KGS to expand his farm by buying two colts and bull-calves for fattening and reselling. With the revenues from the loan, he plans to pay for the education of his children and broaden his business by purchasing more cattle. Chubak is an attentive father and makes every effort to make his dream come true: He wants to see his children become educated and cultured persons.
