Aigul's story

Aigul is 44 years old, and raising three children. As a source of income for her family, Aigul works with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation, after having started this business with the purchase of three sheep. Thanks to Aigul's persistent work, her farm currently consists of 1.6 hectares of irrigated land with beans and potatoes, and further one horse and 15 sheep. With an aim to further develop her business, Aigul turned to the micro finance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of one horse, one dairy cow, sheep and goats. Aigul plans to invest the income from the loan in further expanding her business, and in the near future she plans to hold her son's wedding.
