Altyn's story

Altyn is 41 years old, married and a mother of five children, the youngest of whom is 10 years old. As a means of supporting her family, Altyn started a farming and cattle raising business in 1996. She started with one cow and because of Altyn's hard work and savvy business skills she now has two cows, a calf, twenty five sheep and a horse. Altyn also grows potatoes and beans on her own plot of land. During the summer season Altyn moves with her husband out to pastures where both of them work as shepherds for the herds of their neighbors. In order to grow her own farming business Altyn has turned to "Bai-Tushum and partners" for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS). She is planning to buy two more calves and fourteen sheep with this money. In the future Altyn is planning to using the profits from the loan to repair her family's home and install a steam heating system.
