A loan of $850 helped to purchase two cows.


Kaliyahan's story

Kaliyahan is 53 years old, married, and the mother of two children. Kaliyahan has a degree in Philology. By character, she is a very calm, friendly woman who believes in a bright future for her family and the country as a whole. As a source of income for her family, Kaliyahan in 2010 started to engage in field crops and livestock, beginning this business with the sum of 10,000 KGS. Through hard work, Kaliyahan today has in her farm five dairy cows, and a monthly income from the farm of about 10,000 Som (KGS) from the sale of milk and dairy products. In order to further develop her business, Kaliyahan appealed to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 40,000 Som (KGS) to buy two cows. Kaliyahan plans to use income from the loan to invest in business development by purchasing additional livestock, saving up for her son's wedding next year.
