A loan helped to build a barn to house her livestock.

Erkingul's story

Erkingul is 59 years old and widowed with two children. She has a secondary-level education and she raises livestock for a living, which is her family's primary source of income. Thanks to her hard work, she now has 8 sheep and a horse on her farm, as well as a 0.9-hectare plot of land where she grows alfalfa.

Erkingul's monthly income is around 20,000 som. She tries to invest her savings in expanding her farm, as well as improving her conditions for housing livestock. She has started building a barn, but she needs more funds for building materials to finish it. She has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 som. She plans to invest the profit from her farm in further developing her business and improving the conditions for housing her livestock.
