Toktokan's story

Toktokan is 61 years old, a widow. In search of a source of income for her family, she started her own business in animal husbandry in 1985 with an initial sum of 9,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Toktokan's persistent and hard work, her business now yields about 9,500 som (KGS) in monthly profit. In order to further develop her business, Toktokan requested a loan in the amount of 45,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy additional heads of sheep. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into expanding her business.
