Elena's story

Elena is 41 years old, married and is a mother of four daughters. Her husband is a construction worker. Elena became involved in animal husbandry in 1997 to provide a source of income for her family. Having started with an initial sum of 2,000 som (KGS), she was able to develop her business to have two dairy cows and yield about 15,000 som per month from sales of milk. In order to further develop her business, Elena requested a loan in the sum of 60,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase additional heads of livestock. She plans to invest the profits into increasing livestock headcount further and dreams of building a new house for her family in the future.
