Ermek's story

Ermek is 46 years old, married and raising four children. After graduating with a philology major, Ermek started to work at a school in the 8-March village, where she works to this day as a Kyrgyz-language teacher. In 1990, in search of an additional source of financing for her family, she became involved in animal husbandry. The business, started with a purchase of cows, currently yields about 15,000 som (KGS) per month from sales of milk products. In order to further increase livestock headcount, Ermek requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy sheep and livestock feed. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into increasing livestock headcount, which would allow her to expand her business.
