Patila's story

Patila is 63 years old and a widow. She received her portion of the collective farm land after the breakup of the Soviet Union. To provide the primary source of income, she became involved in animal husbandry and farming in 1998, having started this business with 10,000 som. Thanks to Patila's hard work, today her business contains one cow and six sheep, and the monthly income from the business amounts to about 10,000 som. In order to further develop her business, Patila requested a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy sheep for fattening up and resale. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into a further increase of domestic livestock quantities and business expansion.
