Burulkan's story

Burulkan is 46 years old. She was born and grew up in the village of Aral. Burulkan has three children: her elder daughter is married, and the younger daughter and son are still in school. Burulkan’s husband died prematurely. Burulkan is a grammar school teacher by education and works at the local school. Nevertheless, raising livestock has been the main source of family income for many years. Their business was launched with 50,000 KGS. Burulkan’s monthly income is 5,000 KGS. Burulkan’s farm includes one cow, one horse, and seven sheep. Burulkan has turned to “Bai Tushum & Partners” for the third time; she used her prior loans for expanding and developing her business. This time she is requesting 130,000 KGS. She would like to use this loan to buy two young cows and 12 sheep. Burulkan is a very calm and conscientious person. The results obtained by Burulkan and the condition of her farm witness to her hard work. Burulkan’s future plans include saving enough money to buy an apartment in Bishkek for her daughter. Her life goal is to bring up her children and provide them with a good education.
