A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase seeds and fertilizers.


Sarybay's story

Sarybay is 54 years old, married and has raised five children. In search of income sources for his family, he started his own animal husbandry and farming business in 2002. He grows potatoes, corn and wheat on three hectares of arable land, and also has three heads of cattle and five sheep. Thanks to Sarybay's tenacity and persistence, his business yields from 5,000 to 25,000 som (KGS) per season today. He also provides a taxi service during the off-season. In order to further expand his business, Sarybay requested a loan in the sum of 50,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase wheat and potato seeds, treat land and purchase mineral fertilizers. He plans to invest the profit from this loan into building a more comfortable and spacious barn and building a fence.
