Nurjamal's story

Nurjamal is a 56-year-old widow and mother of three. After the fall of the Soviet Union, Nurjamal was given part of her land. Since 1991 she has worked in animal husbandry and crop farming, providing the main source of income for her family. She started her business with 1,000 som and thanks to hard work and persistence she now has a total of one cow, five sheep, and two horses, which provide her with a monthly income of 20,000 - 30,000 som. Additionally, she plants clover and barley on 3.6 hectares of land annually.

With long term business development in mind, Nurjamal turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 50,000 som to purchase cattle. When she sells her cattle next fall, she plans to build a large shed.
