Saliya's story

Saliya is 54 years old, she is married and has seven children. She has been doing animal husbandry and field crop cultivation for 35 years as a main source of income for her family, a business which she began with an amount of 6,000 som. Because of her hard work Saliya now has ten sheep, two cows and a calf, four goats and two horses with the sale of milk and dairy products which brings her around 15,000 som (KGS) a month.

Saliya has come to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS with a goal to further grow her business and buy additional heads of cattle. She plans to invest the profit from the loan to pay for her youngest son's education.
