A loan of $1,300 helped to purchase livestock.

Kalbu's story

Kalbu is 65 years old, married and has five children. She is involved in animal husbandry to provide a source of income for her family. The business, started in 1990 with 5,000 som (KGS), today yields about 12,000 som (KGS) per month from sales of milk and milk products. Thanks to Kalbu's persistent work, her livestock headcount includes one cow, one calf, two horses and thirty sheep. In order to further develop her business, Kalbu requested a loan in the amount of 60,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy livestock. She plans to invest the earnings into remodeling her house and increasing livestock headcount in the future.
