Jyparkul's Group's story

The flora of Kyrgyzstan is rich and varied due to the geographical location of the country. It has extraordinary masterpieces and accounts for more than 4,500 species of superior plants. Kyrgyzstan can be called a wonder of nature. Some very popular native flowers of this country are Tulip Grage, Tulips Kolpakovskiy, Tulip Bulbs Ilium, Gentiana Flowers and Perennials.

Jyparkul K., 47, is the treasurer of this group. Flowers have been her passion for many years. She thinks she inherited this love from her mother, who was a professional florist. Every early spring Jyparkul paves the way for planting seeds of various types of tulips, roses and her favorite narcissus. April and May brings unbelievable beauty to her garden, which she expands every year. The whole neighborhood is amazed with Jyparkul’s flowers and asks her advice concerning all sowing processes.

A year ago she talked her husband into starting to sell flowers in a local flower market. Soon the business prospered and attracted even foreign customers’ interest. Now it earns up to $170 a month and helps her provide her six children with daily necessities. In the future she plans to diversify her assortment and try to mix in some new types of flowers. She plans to spend the profits generated from this loan to purchase a small piece of land.
