Ninakan's Group's story

Ninakan Z., 56 years old, is this group’s leader. During the 56 years, her life was successful and intensive. This woman’s life has many facets: she is a mother of five, a schoolteacher with many years of experience, and an experienced agricultural worker. All her children, aside from the youngest 24-year old son, have left the nest long time ago and now fly on their own. The youngest son together with his father, who works at the local tax collection agency of their town, take an active part in caring for the livestock. The Toktogul climate is auspicious for raising cattle. The family raises both beef and dairy cattle. The unique local climate allows the family to drive their cattle to different pastures according to the season: in the spring from the valley to the hills, and in the summer to the high mountain areas.

Ninakan believes that this business is profitable. She launched this work 15 years ago, when Ninakan’s parents first bought a cow for her. Since then this business bring stable income for her and her family. She reinvests her income in the business. She is requesting a loan in order to purchase a refrigerator, as she has not been able to set funds aside for this purchase for a long time.

In this group: Ninakan, Нуриза, Бурмаш
