Gulnisa's story

Gulnisa is 52 years old, married and raising two sons, the youngest of whom is ten years old. Gulnisa started her work career as a biology teacher and was awarded the "Excellent Educator of the Kyrgyz Republic" medal for her high performance. Currently, she works at a school in the Pokrovka village. In search of a financing source for her family, Gulnisa started her own business in animal husbandry in 2000. Thanks to her persistent work, today her business has one cow with a calf and ten sheep. Also, Gulnisa works on 2.15 hectares of irrigated land, where she grows beans. In order to further develop her business, she requested a loan in the sum of 120,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy dairy cows and mineral fertilizers. Gulnisa plans to invest the earnings into increasing livestock headcount further.
