Kalima's story

Kalima is 53 years old, she is married and has two sons one of whom is going to school. During the last 20 years Kalima has been doing animal husbandry – breeding and feeding cattle. Each year she plows 1.5 hectares of land with corn and has been in this business with her beloved husband (on the photo) who is her support in any undertakings. At this time Kalima has two cows and ten sheep in her household and she has all the necessary conditions for keeping the cattle. Also as an additional source of income for the family they sell food products.

With the purpose of increasing the headcount of cattle Kalima has come to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS to buy calves and sheep. The family plans to use the profit from the loan to buy a parcel of land to build one more shed for the cattle.
