A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase fertilizers and construction materials.


Azat's story

Azat is 58 years old, and has raised six children. As the main source of income for her family, Azat has been working in animal husbandry and farming since 1991. She started her business with the purchase of two cows. Today Azat's business has 10 goats and sheep, six cows, and four calves. Azat also grows corn, cucumbers, and tomatoes on 3 hectares of land. Her business' monthly profit is about 10,000 somi (KGS) a month.

To further develop her business, Azat has asked Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 70,000 somi (KGS) to buy fertilizer and construction materials for repairing her barn to improve the living conditions for her livestock. Azat plans on investing the proceeds from the loan into further expanding her business by building a new livestock pen.
