Salkyn's story

Salkyn is 62 years old and married, and she and her husband are now pensioners. They have raised 6 children who are now adults and busy with their own families. Salkyn is a hard-working, patient and open-hearted woman. As the main breadwinner of the family, she raises cattle and grows crops. Having started 37 years ago with a sum of only 3,000 Som (KGS), her farm now includes 3 head of cattle and 6 head of smaller livestock. The monthly income from the farm is 6,000 KGS. Salkyn has approached Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 50,000 KGS for the purpose of further developing her business. She plans to buy sheep to fatten and sell. Salkyn will use the income generated by this loan to further expand her business and to have the opportunity to improve her housing conditions.
