Maksuda's story

Maksuda is 69 years old, married and raised eight children. She is a retiree and started her animal husbandry business to provide a source of additional income. Starting with an initial sum of 15,000 som (KGS), Maksuda was able to grow her business to yield a monthly profit of 10,000 som (KGS). Also, Maksuda's family is involved in farming and grow potatoes, corn and alfalfa on two hectares of irrigated land; thus, earning a seasonal income from sales of the harvest. In order to further develop her business, Maksuda requested a loan in the sum of 70,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase ewes. She plans to invest the profits into a further increase of livestock headcount and,in the future, to hold a wedding for her youngest son.
