Baktygul's story

Baktygul is 45 years old, she is divorced and has two children. In search of a source of funding for her family, in 2006 Baktygul started her agriculture business with a starting sum of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Batygul's hard work, today her land holdings of 1 acre planted with potatoes bring in around 10,000-12,000 som (KGS) per month. In addition, to cover daily family expenditures, Baktygul purchases scrap metal that she then turns in to a factory. In order to further grow her business, Baktygul has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 60,000 som (KGS) to purchase potato seeds. Baktygul plans to invest her earning in order to further grow her holdings.
