Nasipkan's story

Nasipkan is 48 years old, married and a mother with many children - she has five children of school and preschool age. Nasipkan has been involved in breeding livestock for 18 years and is concurrently involved in farming. Nasipkan has not only practical experience, but also theoretical know-how in breeding livestock. She treats her business with a lot of responsibility. She annually works on 0.45 hectares of land and grows corn. The children help with the business. Her husband works in Russia. To-date, thanks to her persistence and drive, Nasipkan developed a small business, containing five sheep, one dairy cow, one calf and six goats. Nasipkan wants to continue increasing the livestock headcount and, for this purpose, requested a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) from the Microfinance Bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy cattle. Nasipkan is part of the "MOL" group that has two more participants besides her. Nasipkan plans to use the earnings from the loan to improve the conditions for keeping livestock.
