A loan of $1,400 helped to purchase cattle.

Bekkul's story

Bekkul A. was born into a family of farm workers, where cattle-breeding was passed on from one generation to another. From early childhood, he helped his parents in farming and animal breeding. After graduating from secondary school and serving in the army, he returned home and got a job at a local farm.

Later, after marrying and becoming a father of three children, Bekkul decided to start his own business in cattle breeding. Using his starting capital of 3,000 Kyrgyz Soms, he bought one milk cow and, owing to a persistent and hardworking personality, managed to multiply his investments. Presently, his farm has 3 milk cows, 20 sheep and 2 bulls. Last year, Bekkul applied for a loan to buy cattle and repaid it without any delays.

Bekkul plans to use this loan of 65,000 Kyrgyz Soms to increase his number of cattle for fattening and reselling, and in the future he plans to buy a car for his elder son and hold his wedding.
