Surmakan's story

Surmakan is 56 years old and raised five children. After the breakup of the Union and to provide the primary source of income, she became involved in animal husbandry and farming, having started this business with a sum of 5,000 som. Thanks to Surmakan's hard work, today her business contains one dairy cow with offspring, ten heads of small livestock and two horses, and the monthly income from the business amounts to about 5,000 som. In order to further develop her business, Surmakan requested a loan in the amount of 130,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy livestock for fattening up and resale. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities in order to save money for her youngest son's education, who is now 16 years old.
