Busara's Group's story

Milk production is very successful in Kyrgyzstan. Such companies as Bishkek-Sut and Vimm Bil Dan provide the residents with high quality milk products. According to statistics an average person consumes milk products at least once a day.

Busara J., 47, is a leader of this group. She is married to a farmer and has a twelve-year-old daughter. She started her business of milk production in 2003 and hasn’t regretted it at all. First she purchased a dairy cow and sold the generated milk to friends from the neighborhood every morning. Busara's business became so popular in the neighborhood that she had to buy more dairy cows in order to generate more milk. Soon local ice-cream and cake producers started purchasing her milk on a regular basis. They liked high quality of this raw material. The next idea was to diversify her products. Busara bought new equipment for making high sorted cheese, sour cream and butter. She loved how everything worked out and sold all of her products almost immediately. The reason Busara applied for this loan is that she’s in need of new equipment for making milk products because her old one is getting exhausted. Busara’s dream is a two-storied big house where her daughter would be happy to live.
