Shaken's story

Shaken is a 62 years old widow, who cares for and raises her grandchildren. In this way, she is helping her son who is a migrant worker in Russia.

In 1990, in the search of a source of income for her family, Shaken started her business of livestock breeding with a starting sum of 8,000 som (KGS). Thanks to persistence and perseverance, her farm today counts five heads of cattle and 15 sheep, and the monthly income is around 5,000 som (KGS) from sale of dairy and meat products. Further, Shaken processes 1.72 hectares of land, where she grows beans.

With an aim to further develop her business, Shaken turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of dairy cows. In the future, Shaken wants to enlarge the farm and expand her business through the sale of dairy products to the neighboring Kazaksthan
