Bermet
Bermet is a 47 year old widow and she worked hard to raise her six children. Bermet became a widow very early and was left without a provider and a husband, and her children - without a father. It was hard to stop grieving the loss of her closest friend, but Bermet took a hold of herself and made plans. How would she feed her family now? How will she raise her children? How will she provide all six children with an education? After discussing all of this with her children, the family decided to send the eldest son to the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Bermet gave her meager savings to her son and he was able to use that money to start a retail business at one of the markets. He has been having good luck and is able to send money monthly back to the village. Bermet is also working hard to provide for her children - she has a dairy business. The herd was started 20 years ago with 10,000 KGD. Bermet's hard work has expanded the herd to five milk cows and yields monthly profits of 10,000 som KGS. In order to further expand her herd, Bermet has turned to the micro-finance bank "Bai Tushum and partners" for a loan which she will use to buy more cows. She will use the profits from the loan to buy more livestock and save money for home repairs.

Бермет 47 лет, вдова одна с трудом воспитала 6 детей. Бермет рано осталась без мужа и кормильца семьи, а дети без отца. Тяжело пережив смерть и утрату близкого человека Бермет взяла себя в руки и начала строить планы: как же прокормить семью? Как поставить детей на ноги? А их шестеро... Как дать им достойное образование? Обсудив все эти вопросы со своими детьми, они решили отправить старшего сына в столицу Кыргызстана. У Бермет были небольшие денежные накопления, она отдала их старшему сыну и сын начал заниматься торговлей вещами на рынке. У него это хорошо получилось и ежемесячно он высылает доходы своей семье в село. А Бермет в это время не сидит сложив руки и в качестве основного дохода для своей семьи занимается животноводством. Развитием животноводства Бермет начала заниматься еще 20 лет назад, с покупки скота на 10,000 сом KGS. Благодаря упорному труду Бермет, в ее хозяйстве на сегодняшний день имеется: 5 дойных коров. Ежемесячный доход составляет 10,000 сом (KGS). В целях дальнейшего развития своего хозяйства, Бермет обратилась в Микрофинансовый банк «Бай –Тушум и Партнеры» за кредитом - на покупку коров для увеличения поголовья скота. Доходы от кредита Бермет планирует вложить в дальнейшее приумножение количества домашней скотины, и планирует накопить средства на ремонт дома.
