Baktygul's story

Baktygul is 52 years old and she has four children. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Baktygul received her share of her collective farm and began working primarily in raising livestock and farming. She started this business with 30,000 Som. Thanks to her hard work, Baktygul now has one dairy cow with a calf and one heifer on her farm. The monthly income from her business is about 5,000 Som. In order to develop her business further, Baktygul has turned to "Bai Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 50,000 Som (KGS) to purchase livestock she can raise and sell. She plans to use the proceeds from her loan to increase her head of livestock so she can save for the education of her younger son, who is now 16 years old. In the future, Baktygul plans to buy a house in the village for her son, so that in her old age she can easily take care her grandchildren.
