Bubusara's story

Bubusara is 55 years old, and a widow. Her son and her daughter live together with her. The daughter goes to school while the son actively helps his mother with her business. Bubusara has a specialized secondary education, and after having finished this she immediately married. She is a very good person by nature, and her neighbors speak well of her. They love her and support her.

In search of a main income for the family, Bubusara started working with field crop cultivation and livestock breeding in 1995. She started this business with a sum of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her persistent work, her farm today has three cows and five sheep. The monthly income from the business is around 12,000 som (KGS), from the sale milk and dairy products and in addition from crop cultivation. Bubusara processes 1.2 hectares of land where she sows barley every year.

With an aim to further develop her business, Bubusara turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 80,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of one cow, five sheep and one calf. Bubusara plans to invest the income from the loan in developing her business through purchasing additional livestock. The care for her children and providing a good education for them is the main priority for Bubusara.
