Kanchaiym's story

Kanchaiym is a member of the Nurdoolot group. She is 57 years old and the mother of four children. Kanchaiym is retired and as the main source of income for her family is engaged in raising livestock and field crop cultivation. Through hard work, her farm today has 2.10 hectares of land sown with grain crops. In order to further develop her business, Kanchaiym turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 60,000 som (KGS), with the purpose of buying a dairy cow to get profit from the sale of milk. Kanchaiym plans to invest income from the loan in further development of her business, and dreams of building a new house with all the comforts.
