Venera's story

Venera is 37 years old, she is married and raising four children. Venera is engaged in animal husbandry and field crop cultivation since 2000 as an additional source income for her family, a business which she started with the capital of 20,000 som (KGS) which was used to buy a milk cow. Today Venera's livestock includes two cows, one calf, one horse and twenty sheep as well as 2,0 hectares of arable land where she grows potatoes and beans.

With the goal to further grow her business Venera has come to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 60,000 KGS to buy a milk cow. She plans to invest the income from the loan to further increase of her livestock.
