Jumabubu's story

Jumabubu is 63 years old, a widow and raised nine children. To provide a source of income for her family, Jumabubu became involved in animal husbandry in 1997. The business, started with 10,000 som (KGS), today yields about 12,000 som (KGS) from sales of milk and meat products. Thanks to Jumabubu's hard work, her livestock headcount includes five dairy cows and thirty-five sheep. In order to further develop her business, Jumabubu requested a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy livestock. She plans to invest the earnings into a further increase of livestock headcount in order to open her own mini-farm in the future.
