A loan of $800 helped to purchase a milk cow.


Zhanylbubu's story

Zhanylbubu is 62 years old. She worked as a milkmaid at the local farm for 30 years and is known as a hard-working person.

To find means of subsistence for her family, Zhanylbubu began her business in cattle breeding and land cultivating. Owing to her wide experience in these activities, she managed to develop her farm successfully. Currently, she grows barley and clover and has six sheep, four goats and cows on her farm. She sells milk to the local dairy farm.

With the revenue from these activities, Zhanylbubu was able to provide her children with the essentials. Now Zhanylbubu plans to use this loan for 35,000 KGS to purchase one more milk cow to raise her sales of milk. With the revenue from this investment, she plans to make renovations on her house.

In the future, Zhanylbubu plans to maintain a big farm with a large number of cattle.
