Arzykan's story

Arzykan is 60 years old, married, has raised 5 children and has 6 grandchildren. Arzykan had been engaged in livestock husbandry for 40 years which has been the main source of income for her family. Having hands-on experience in livestock husbandry, Arzykan is successfully developing her business which today includes 15 sheep, 5 goats, 4 cows, and 4 calves. In addition, she is also cultivating 1.5 hectares of land. These activities allow Arzykan to earn about 5,000 KGS per month. In order to further expand her business, Arzykan came to "Bai Tushum & Partners" for the loan of 75,000 KGS to purchase additional livestock headcount. Arzykan is planning to invest the income from the loan into rebuilding the barn to improve living conditions of her livestock.
