Elmira's story

Elmira is 27 years old, married, and raising a three-year old daughter. In the search of a source of income for her family, since 2005 Elmira launched a livestock business, with a starting capital of 30,000 KGS. Thanks to Elmira’s hard work, her livestock currently includes three cows, three calves, and one horse, which allows her to earn a monthly profit of 15,000 KGS.

In order to continue growing her business , Elmira turned to “Bai Tushum & Partners” for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS in order to buy bulls for fattening and resale. Elmira plans to use the revenues from her loan for a further increase of her livestock.
