A loan of $2,125 helped to purchase cattle.


Kalyicha's story

Kalyicha is a fifty-five year old woman with six children. In 1980, she began an animal raising business with a starting capital of only 2,000 soms (KGS). Thanks to her hard work and dedication, her business has grown to consist of 5 cows with calves and 40 heads of small-horned cattle; the sale of milk and milk products brings in around 10,000 soms per month.
In order to expand her business further, Kalyicha approached "Bai Tushum and Partners" with a request for a loan of 100,000 soms (KGS) in order to purchase a horse and a mare. Kalyicha plans to reinvest any profits from this loan into her business.
