A loan of $2,050 helped to purchase steers.

Naarkul's story

Naarkul is 59 years old, married, and has two adult children. She has specialized secondary education. Since 1982 she has worked with farming - livestock breeding and field crop cultivation - after having started this business with a sum of 9,000 som (KGS). Her husband and children help her with the business.

Thanks to Naarkul's persistent work, she currently has a good farm: One dairy cow, one steer and five sheep. She also has 3.15 hectares of irrigated land available, on which she plants wheat and barley every year. The income allowed Naarkul to multiply the number of livestock at the far, and thereby improve the family's well-being.

With an aim to further develop her business, Naarkul turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of steers. Naarkul plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of livestock, and in the future she also plans to repair her house.
