Mahabat's story

Mahabat is 38 years old, married and a mother of three children. She has a secondary education and got married right after finishing school. She is a very good person. She has good references from her neighbors. They love and support her. To provide a source of income for his family, Mahabat became involved in farming and animal husbandry in 1998, having started this business with a sum of 5,000 KGS. Thanks to her hard work, today her business contains one cow, and the monthly profit from the business amounts to about 13,000 som (KGS) from sales of milk and dairy products and also from farming. In order to further develop his business, Mahabat requested a loan in the amount of 60,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy a cow and four sheep. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into developing his business by buying additional heads of livestock. Taking care of the children and providing them with a good education is the primary goal for Mahabat and her husband.
