Zamira's story

Zamira is a participant of the "Ilim-1" group. She is 50 years old and works as a Kyrgyz language and literature teacher at the Nooken village school. To provide an additional source of income for her family, Zamira has been involved in animal husbandry and farming for 12 years, having started this business with a sum of 2,000 som. Thanks to her hard work, today her business contains five sheep and one cow, and the sales of milk and meat yield about 8,000 som per month. Additionally, Zamira works on 0.50 hectares of land, where she grows cotton and corn. In order to further develop her business, Zamira requested a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase additional heads of livestock and fertilizers for the soil. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into a continued development of her business.
