Salamat's story

Salamat is 52 years old, married and raising four children together with her husband. Salamat has specialized secondary education. The neighbors speak of her as a diligent and responsible woman. Her husband and children help her with her business. The family is very friendly, and their relationship is very good. As a main income for the family, Salamat has worked with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation since 1994, after having started this business with 10,000 som (KGS). She has long experience with breeding and keeping livestock. Thanks to Salamat's persistent work, she currently has two dairy cows, 20 sheep, two heifers and one horse on her farm. She also has a plot of land of 3.72 hectares, on which she grows beans and perennial grasses. Her agricultural business brings in around 10,000 som (KGS) per month, which is the basis for covering the family's food and household expenses. The income from the farm has allowed Salamat to raise and equip the children, and also to improve their living standard. With an aim to further develop her business, Salamat turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of cows. Salamat plans to invest the income from the loan in further developing her business, and also, she intends to save up money to, in the future, pay for higher education for her grandchildren.
