Janybek's story

Janybek is a 47-year-old farmer, living in the village of Frunze (in northeastern Kyrgyzstan). He is married, and raising three children: 16, 13 and 8 years old. Since 1991, Janybek's family has been successfully raising lifestock, and selling farm products. They especially focus on growing apples and pears, as well as processing wheat. Now, Janybek has 3 cows, 2 horses and 10 sheep. Janybek's perseverance and hard work has allowed him to cover his family's expenses and save for his children's post-high-school education. To further increase the number of animals at his farm, Janybek is turning to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 100,000 KGS, to purchase additional animals to fatten for market. Janybek plans to use the money he makes on improvements on the barn, to ensure good living conditions for his livestock.
