A loan of $1,075 helped calves for fattening and resale.

Gulkaiyr's story

Gulkaiyr and her family live in the village of Kaindy to the north of the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek. She has three children, the youngest of whom is seven. Like many other families in rural areas, Gulkaiyr and her husband raise livestock, having started their business in 1998. Presently, Gulkaiyr keeps 1 dairy cow and 23 sheep. Sales of milk, dairy products and meat allow her to earn around 15,000 som (KGS) per month.

In order to continue expanding her business, Gulkaiyr has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to purchase calves for fattening and resale. She plans to re-invest her additional profits into her business by further increasing the size of her herd, and dreams of buying a car in the future.
