Jumagul's Group's story

Jumagul, 40 years-old, is the leader of this group. The spirit of enterprise is sparked by small business people with big ideas- people like Jumagul , who grew-up in a small town of Aravan in the South of Kyrgyzstan.

Mol Bulak Finance, a field partner of Kiva in Kyrgyzstan, describes such women as a basic foundation for building a steady nation. Jumagul is currently the most successful entrepreneur in the area. Her small business specializes in cattle market and dairy products. At the moment she handles the reselling of at least twenty heads of cattle monthly and generates 2,000 soms. The story of Jumagul started in 1991, after the collapse of the Soviet Union. She saved just enough to purchasing sheep. Gradually she broadened the household and her business prospered. The distribution of her milk products additionally brings 3,750 soms monthly.

Jumagul would like to use the loan from Kiva to purchase additional sheep because they have high demand. Jumagul has many plans and wishes for the future including providing an education for her children, finishing the construction of her house and the purchase of an automobile.
