Bakbubu's story

Bakbubu is 60 years old, married, and raised six children. The main source of income for Bakbubu and her family is animal husbandry and crop-farming, which Bakbubu has been engaged in since 2000. She started her business with the amount of 30,000 som (KGS) and bought 5 head of sheep. Throughout the years Bakbubu managed to expand the business, which today counts 2 dairy cows, 3 heifers, 3 calves, 5 goats and 1 horse. Bakbubu also cultivates 2.40 ha of land where grows beans and potatoes.
In order to further develop her business, Bakbubu turned to the organization Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to purchase bull calves and a dairy cow. Bakbubu is planning on investing the earnings from the loan in building materials for the construction of a spacious and cosy cattle barn.
