Kermekan's story

Kermekan is 52 years old, a widow and raised four children. In search of a source of income for her family, she started her own business in animal husbandry in 1980 with an initial sum of 15,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Kermekan's persistent and hard work, her business, containing 10 sheep and a dairy cow, now yields about 6,000 som (KGS) from sales of milk and milk products. In order to further develop her business, Kermekan requested a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy bulls for fattening up and resale. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into expanding her business.
