Zulpiya's story

Zulpiya is 62 years old and married. In the search of a source of income for her family, Zulpiya started her business of animal husbandry in 2000, with a starting sum of 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to persistence and perseverance, her farm today numbers six dairy cows, twenty sheep and four mares, bringing in around 15,000 som (KGS) per month from the sale of meat and dairy products. With a goal of further developing her business, Zulpiya turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of purebred sheep. In the future, Zulpiya wants to enlarge the farm and increase her business.
