Tilekmat's story

Tilekmat is a 38 year old farmer, he is married and has four sons and one daughter, they are all students. Tilekmat has been involved in arable farming for over eighteen years processing 1.8 hectares of land annually where he grows potatoes and corn and then sells the gathered season's harvest in Bishkek (the capital). Animal husbandry is the off-season source of income for Tilekmat's family which began with the amount of 10,000 som (KGS). At this time his farm accounts for two cows, seven calves, 40 sheep, one horse and brings about 8,000 som per month. In order to further increase the number of livestock Tilekmat has come to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 80,000 som (KGS) to purchase calves and sheep. He plans to invest the income from the loan in the reconstruction of the barn for the cattle.
