Elmira's story

Elmira is 49 years old and has 3 children. Elmira works as a teacher in a local school and by way of additional income, she has practiced animal husbandry for the last 14 years. She started this business with 10,000 som. Thanks to Elmira's hard work, she currently has two milk cows with offspring and two horses in her stock. In addition, Elmira tills 2.55 hectares of land with potatoes and sainfoin for the cattle to eat. Thanks to the income from the business, Elmira is able to pay for her youngest daughter's education.

For the purpose of the further development of her business, Elmira appealed to the company "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of cattle for fattening up and reselling. Elmira plans to use the income from the loan to further increase the quantity of her livestock in order to pay for education tuition as well as to build a fence, which she plans to do this year.
