Damira's story

Damira is 53 years old, married and raised five children. She works as an accountant at the Village Association of water users and, as an additional source of income for her family, runs an animal husbandry business. Having started in 2004 with an initial sum of 5,000 som (KGS), Damira was able to develop her business to yield 8,000 som (KGS) per month from sales of milk and dairy products. Today, her business contains three dairy cows, three horses and fifty sheep. The earnings from this business allowed Damira to pay for her children's university education. In order to further grow her business, Damira requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 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.
