A loan of $2,150 helped to purchase dairy cows.

Upan's story

Upan is 58 years old, and a widow. Upan has been engaged in animal husbandry since 1991, having started this business with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to persistent work, Upan currently has one cow, two calves and 30 sheep and goats on her farm, and the sale of milk and dairy products brings in around 20,000 som (KGS) per month.

With an aim to further develop her business, Upan turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of dairy cows, which will allow her to increase the milk production. Upan plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of domestic animals.
