A loan helped buy cattle for her farm.

Gulbara's story

Gulbara is 48, married, and raising 4 children together with her husband. She has the equivalent of a high school education, and raises livestock for a living, having started 26 years ago with 1,000 somoni worth of animals. Thanks to her persistent efforts, she currently has a dairy cow, 2 calves, and 15 sheep, and her monthly income has grown to around 10,000 somoni. To further develop her farm, Gulbara is seeking a loan of 135,000 somoni from Bai Tushum and Partners to buy cows. She plans on using the extra money that this loan will allow her to earn to continue buying more livestock for her farm, as well as to set aside money for her son's wedding.
