Jamalbu's story

Jamalbu is 52 years old and married. As a source of income for her family, Jamalbu started a field crop farming and animal husbandry business in 1985. Her business, which she started with an initial amount of 20,000 som (KGS), now brings close to 10,000 som (KGS) per month from the sale of milk and dairy products. Jamalbu also cultivates 2.96 hectares of land and grows beans, potatoes and perennial grass.

Possessing a natural talent for sewing and embroidery, Jamalbu receives orders to make national blankets, carpets and dowries, which brings a small additional income to her family.

In order to further develop her business, Jamalbu has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 110,000 som (KGS), which will be used for the purchase of some dairy cows and 10 sheep. She plans to invest her earnings into the further expansion of her business.
