With long term development of her farm in mind, Lena turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 120,000 som to purchase four cows, which would allow her to increase her milk production and as a result her family's income. Lena plans to invest this new income to develop her farm and eventually to buy a home for her son.
