A loan of $2,550 helped to purchase cattle.


Sarina's story

Sarina is 50 years old, married, and has 2 adult children. As the main source of income for her family, Sarina raises cattle, having started her business 25 years ago with an investment of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her persistence and hard work, Sarina's herd currently has 2 dairy cows with offspring. Additionally, Sarina sews plastic sugar bags at home and later sells them to the local sugar factory.

In order to continue developing her livestock business, Sarina has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS) to purchase calves for fattening and resale. She plans to invest her profits from this loan into further expansion of her business and into construction of a new barn for her animals.
