Bais's story

Bais is 61 years old, and has four children. As a source of income for her family, Bais works with livestock breeding. She started this business in 1990 with an amount of 1,000 som (KGS), which she used to purchase a calf. Thanks to Bais' persistent work, her farm currently has two cows and 30 sheep, and her monthly income is around 20,000 som (KGS). With an aim to further develop her business, Bais turned to the micro finance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of cattle for fattening and reselling. Bais plans to invest the income from the loan in further expanding her business. She plans to help her grandchildren pay for tuition.
