A loan of $650 helped to purchase livestock.

Meylikan's story

Meylikan is 58 years old. She has been working as a nurse for a long time and now is retired. Meylikan is engaged in animal husbandry and crop-farming which are a source of income for her family. The animal husbandry business was set up back in the Soviet times with 100 Soviet roubles, and currently brings in about 7,000 som (KGS) per day from the sale of milk. As of today, Meylikan's farm counts two dairy cows, one horse and ten sheep.
In order to further develop her business, Meylikan sought help from Bai Tushum & Partners and asked for a loan in the amount of 30,000 som (KGS) to purchase one heifer. Meylikan is planning on investing her earnings from the loan in planting 3.5 ha of beans, and in the future she wants to increase the livestock population.
