Aitkul's story

Aitkul is 51 years old, married and has one daughter. Aitkul works as an accountant at the local administration office of the Ton village and, to provide an additional source of income for her family, she is involved in breeding livestock. After starting this business in 1992 with a sum of 2,000 som and thanks to Aitkul's hard work, today her business contains two cows, eleven sheep, one horse and also 1.08 hectares of irrigated land, where she annually gathers clover for livestock feed. The monthly income from the business amounts to about 8,000 som. In order to further develop her business, Aitkul requested a loan in the amount of 85,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy livestock for fattening up and resale. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into expanding her business in order to help her daughter to buy an apartment.
