Aichurok's story

Aichurok is 60 years old, married, and has six children. She has a secondary education. She is well versed in running a farming business, and is able to invest funds as necessary. She has been engaged in animal husbandry for her family's main source of income for many years. In summer the livestock are let out to pasture, and in the winter they are cared for in cowsheds, and their organic milk is sold. Thanks to Aichurok's persistent hard work, at present her farm has two cows, 20 sheep, four horses, and 1.5 hectares of irrigated land, on which she grows barley.

In order to improve her family's living conditions, Aichurok has applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to renovate her home and build a roof. Aichurok intends to complete her home renovations.
