Galmamat's story

Galmamat is 48 years old, married and the father of six children. In the search of income for his family, Galmamat started his business of fattening and re-selling cattle 7 years ago. Thanks to Galmamat's persistence and perseverance, from starting with the amount of 2,000 som (KGS), the farm today counts 12 sheep and one cow and brings in around 2,000 som (KGS) per month. Galmamat also grows apples, apricots and potatoes, which gives a seasonal income. In order to further increase the number of livestock, Galmamat turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 70,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of additional heads of cattle. Galmamat plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of livestock.
