Sabokhat's story

Sabokhat, 60 years old, is married and has four children. In order to find the means to cover all of her family's household expenses, she started a business in cattle breeding and land cultivating. With a start-up capital of 3,000 KGS, Sabokhat managed to develop a farm with two milk cows. She also has a greenhouse with cabbages, onions and tomatoes and grows corns and potatoes on the homestead land. All of these activities allow Sabokhat to earn about 10,000 KGS in season.

Sabokhat plans to use this loan of 70,000 KGS to purchase cattle as well as fertilizers to manure her land. With the revenues, she plans a further broadening of her business activities.
