A loan of $2,125 helped to purchase more livestock.

Rysbubu's story

Rysbubu is 70 years old, and is married. She is a heroic mother, for she has 9 children. Rysbubu has a high school education, and got married after she graduated. Both she and her husband are now retired, and aside from their pension, their main source of income comes from raising livestock and growing crops. Thanks to their hard work, Rysbubu and her husband now have 1 dairy cow, 1 calf, and 10 sheep on their farm. Rysbubu also cultivates 2.8 hectares of land, where she grows beans and potatoes. With the goal of expanding her business, Rysbubu turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan in the amount of 100,000 some (KGS) to purchase young livestock for fattening and resale. They also receive additional income from selling milk. Rysbubu plans on investing the money earned from the loan into increasing the number of domestic livestock.
