A loan of $2,800 helped to purchase livestock.

Sonaiym's story

Sonaiym is 33 years old, married and is raising three school-age children. Her family's primary source of income is animal husbandry. Having started with a purchase of five sheep, Sonaiym was able to develop her business to yield a monthly profit of 4,000 som (KGS). The earnings from this business allowed Sonaiym to buy a house for her family in her village. In order to further develop her business, Sonaiym requested a loan in the sum of 130,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy sheep for fattening up and resale. She plans to invest the profits into increasing livestock headcount further and, in the future, dreams to see her children as university students.
