Karamat's story

Karamat is 64 years old, a widow and has two grown children. She started her animal husbandry and farming business in 1995 and obtained her first loan in the sum of 60,000 som from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to increase livestock quantity in 2010. The loan was used as directed and repaid without any delays, which speaks of Karamat's diligence and persistence. Today, Karamat has 10 sheep and 3 cows with calves. She also grows potatoes, carrots, corn and sunflowers and sells the harvest at local markets. In order to further develop her business, Karamat requested another loan from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of bulls and feed for them.
