Ellada's story

Ellada lives with her family in one of the mountain villages of Kyrgyzstan, the village of At-Bashy, in the north of the country. She is 40 years old and is raising three children.

Ellada raises animals as a source of income for the family. Begun with a sum of 50,000 som (KGS), her farm today is made up of two dairy cows with offspring, ten heads of sheep, and a horse, and brings in around 5,000 som (KGS) a month from the sale of milk and dairy products. With the aim of further expanding her business, Ellada appealed to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of additional head of cattle for fattening and resale.

Ellada plans to use profits to further expand her farm by planting 0.5 hectares of potatoes.
