Elmira's story

Elmira is 42 years old. She is a widow and is raising three children. Elmira provides her family's sole source of income by breeding livestock. She started the business 25 years ago with 10,000 som in initial capital. Thanks to her tireless work, she now has seven goats and one horse, and livestock sales bring in a monthly profit of 3,000 som. In order to further develop her business, Elmira came to Bai Tushum and Partners for a 50,000 som (KGS) loan to purchase sheep which she plans to fatten and resell. She plans to invest proceeds from the loan into expanding her herd.
