A loan of $650 helped to purchase livestock.

Baktygul's story

Baktygul is 57 and works in crops and livestock, which is her family's main source of income. She started this business in 2004 with 10,000 som (KGS) and thanks to her hard work, she now was three dairy cows with calves, two horses, 15 sheep and goats, and her monthly income is now approximately 10,000 som (KGS). Baktygul also works 1.2 hectares of land on which she grows barley, potatoes and sainfoin, which she uses as feed for the cattle. To ensure the further development of her business, she has turned to "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 30,000 som (KGS) to buy sheep to fatten and resell. Baktygul plans to use the remaining money from the loan to invest in the development of her business, and she would like to make some small home repairs this year.
