Uulkan's story

Uulkan is a 46-year-old farmer who lives in the village of Boz - Karagan. She is married and has raised seven children, the youngest of whom is 17 years old. Uulkan's work in animal husbandry is a tradition, since her family has been farming for several generations. Now on her small farm, Uulkan has two cows, fifteen sheep and three horses. In summer, Uulkan makes about 18,000 Som (KGS) from selling meat and dairy products.

In order to further expand her business, Uulkan contacted Bai - Tushum and Partners for a loan of 130,000 som (KGS). With the money, she intends to purchase twelve calves and cattle to send to summer grazing in the highlands. In the future, Uulkan plans to develop and expand her business.
