Three years ago, with an initial investment of 15,000 soms, Akylbu purchased cattle and since that time she is engaged in cattle breeding. She sells milk products and in this way she earns about 2000 soms per month to meet their daily needs. With money received from the loan Akylbu wants to purchase more farm animals for breeding. In the future she wishes to build a new house for her sons.
