Barihan is a 47 year old farmer who lives in the village of Ak-Kolot in the south Kyrgyzstan. She is married and a mother of four children. Three of her children are adults and are taking care of themselves and their own families. Only Barihan's youngest son is still living at home. The entire family helps their mother during the spring planting season. Barihan has a calm, hardworking and responsive personality. She has been raising livestock since 1992 and the herd has become the main source of income for the family. After the fall of the Soviet Union Barihan received a plot of land from the co-op and also owns 30 sheep and 2 cows. In order to further expand the herd she has turned to "Bai-Tushum and partners" for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS). She is planning to use the profits from this loan to buy even more livestock and hopefully marry off her last son next year.
