Ainura's story

Ainura is 40 years old, married and a mother of 2 children. She has a college education. Ainura is well versed in agricultural management strategies and knows how to invest judiciously. The farm and livestock have been the main source of income for Ainura's family since 2004. Currently, the family owns 3 cows, 15 sheep and 2.25 hectares (5.5 acres) of land for alfa alfa and oats. In order to further expand her business, Ainura has turned to "Bai Tushum" bank for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS), which she will use to purchase livestock.
