Rapiya's story

Rapiya is 55 years old, a widow, and has raised five children. As a main source of income for the family, Rapiya breeds cattle, having started with the purchase of one calf. Currently her farm numbers two dairy cows, one calf and one horse. Rapiya also works with sewing bags and national products, and the income from her craft helps a little on the family budget.

In order to further develop of her business, Rapiya turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 80,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of cows and sheep. Rapiya plans to invest the income in further increasing the number of cattle, and dreams of opening her own store in the future.
