Asylbu's story

Asylbu is a member of the "Takhmina"-group. She is 50 years old, a widow, and the mother of four children. Asylbu has worked with maintenance at a museum in the Cholponata village for more than 10 years. In the search of additional income for her family, Asylbu started working with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation in 1991. Currently, Asylbu's farm includes one calf, one cow, one goat and she also cultivates 0.70 hectares of land, where she grows potatoes.

With an aim to further develop her business, Asylbu turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 35,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of additional livestock. Asylbu plans to invest the income from the loan in further growing her business.
