A loan of $2,350 helped to purchase livestock.

Baktygul's story

Baktygul is a thirty-nine-year-old married mother raising 4 children. She works as a teacher of Kyrgyz language in the Bokonbaevo village school, but she also raises animals in order to supplement her teacher's salary. She began this business with a sum of 20,000 soms and today, due to her hard work, she owns 2 cows, 30 sheep and 2.08 hectares of land she uses to cultivate potatoes and cock's head, which serves as fodder for her herd. Her monthly income from the business is about 10,000 soms.

In order to expand her business, Baktygul approached "Bai Tushum and Partners" with a request for a loan 110,000 soms (KGS). This loan would allow her to purchase some livestock for fattening and resale. She plans to invest profits from the loan back into her business and build up some savings so that she could pay for her son Sirgat and her daughter Nyrjamal to go to college.
