Aijan's story

Aijan is a member of the group "Iigilik -3". She is a 30-year-old mother of three. As the main source of income for her family, Aijan farms beans and potatoes in addition to raising cattle. With the goal of future business development, Aijan turned to the micro-finance bank Bai Tushum and Partners for a 50,000 loan, with which she plans to purchase a steer and fuel for spring planting. She intends to invest the extra income in future development of her business and to build a new barn for her cattle.
