Inayat's story

The 62-year-old Inayat is a widow, with three children. She has a secondary education, is familiar with agricultural techniques, and knows how to use resources for their intended purpose. She has been raising livestock for many years, and this is her family's main source of income. Thanks to Inayat's hard work, her farm presently consists of two cows, 20 sheep, and a 0.56-hectare plot of irrigated land on which she grows clover.

In order to develop her business yet further, Inayat has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS), which she will use to install heating systems and windows. Inayat is planning to put the income generated by the loan into expanding her business by increasing her headcount and into ongoing home repairs.
