Nurlan's story

Nurlan is a 36-year farmer who raises animals and grows crops. Many years of experience, from a very early age on, and hard daily work have allowed him to become a successful farmer.

Having launched his business by planting potato seeds for the total sum of about 2,000 KGS, Nurlan has been able to develop a farm with a monthly income of 15,000 KGS. Today he has three horses and 10 sheep, as well as 1 ha [2.5 acres] of workable land, where he grows potatoes as well as plants used for animal feed.

In order to develop his business further, Nurlan turned to “Bai Tushum and Partners” for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS to buy sheep. He plans to use his earnings in order to rebuild his house. In the near future, Nurlan, who is a loving son to his aged mother, would like to get married and start a family.
