Gulnara's story

Gulnara is 47 years old. Together with her husband, they raised three children. After graduating with a journalist major, Gulnara worked in an editorial department of the central, local newspaper. She moved to the Aral village in 1994 and became the head of the local library, where she still works to this day. Gulnara's family is involved in animal husbandry as a way to have an additional source of income. This business was started with a sum of 20,000 som (KGS) and brings in about 6,000 som (KGS) per month today from the sales of dairy products. In order to further increase livestock headcount, Gulnara requested a loan in the sum of 50,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company for the purchase of heifers and cows. Gulnara plans to invest the profits from the loan into increasing the headcount, which will allow her to expand her business.
