Almakan's story

Almakan is 48 years old, married, and has seven children. She has been working in animal husbandry since 2002, starting her business with an initial amount of 25,000 som (KGS), and providing her family with its main source of income.

She initially bought a cow and 10 head of small livestock, but she now has 7 goats and their kids, 10 sheep and 2 cows with their calves. She makes about 20,000 som per month from the sale of milk and dairy products.

In order to further expand her business, Almakan has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS). She will use her loan to buy additional head of cattle. She plans to invest the profits from this loan into further expanding her farming business.
