Makhabat's story

Makhabat is 45 years old, married and has five children, the youngest of whom is nine years old. To provide the primary source of income for her family, Makhabat has been involved in farming and animal husbandry for two years, having started this business with an initial sum of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, today her business contains three dairy cows with offspring, nine small livestock and 1.3. hectares of irrigated land plot with onions and carrots. In order to further develop her business, Makhabat requested a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy dairy cows in order to increase milk volumes. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into developing her business by planting pepper in order to have an ability to pay for her children's education.
