Bukhavakhan's story

Bukhavakhan is 41 years old, married and the mother of two children. As a main source of income for her family, Bukhavakhan has been working with livestock breeding since 1995, having started this business with the purchase of sheep. Currently Bukhavakhan has two cows and two calves on her farm, and she also provides a food service, selling food at the local market. The income from the business is around 6,000 som (KGS) per month.

With an aim to further develop her business, Bukhavakhan turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 60,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of additional livestock. Bukhavakhan plans to invest the income from the loan in further growing her business.
