Asankan's story

Asankan is a 54 year-old farmer, living in the Tasma village (north-western part of Kyrgyzstan). Two of Asankan's children became farmers just like their grandfather and help out with the family business. Since 1991, Asankans family has been successfully involved in breeding livestock and reselling agricultural products. Starting with a capital of 20,000 som (KGS), Asankan was able to develop his business to have a monthly income of 13,000 som. In order to further increase livestock headcount, he requested a loan in the sum of 120,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy additional livestock for fattening up. Asankan plans to use the expected profit to build a new barn in order to provide good conditions for keeping livestock.
