Nurkul's story

Nurkul is 48 years old, married and is raising three children. She works as a nurse at the local hospital. In search of means for survival for her family, Nurkul started her own business of breeding livestock and reselling agricultural crops in 2003. She used an initial sum of 10,000 som (KGS) to purchase livestock and was able to grow her business to currently have five bulls and a monthly profit of about 30,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Nurkul requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase heifers. In the near future, she plans to increase livestock headcount with the help of the profits from this loan.
