Mahabat's story

Mahabat is 35 years old, married, and is raising five children, the youngest daughter of which is a newborn.

As a main source of income since 1990, Mahabat has been engaged in raising livestock and agriculture, starting with 15,000 Som and the purchase of one cow. Mahabat received land before the breakup of the USSR where she does annual planting of beans and potatoes. Through hard work, Mahabat and her family currently have in their household one dairy cow, a horse, 30 sheep, and two goats. Monthly income from the business is 3,500 Som KGS from the sale of milk and dairy products. Income from growing crops allows her to buy sheep and cattle at the end of the season.

With the goal of further developing her business, Mahabat appealed to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 100,000 Som (KGS) to buy livestock and to pay for preparation of her land for seeding. Mahabat plans to use income from the loan to invest in further expanding the count of domestic livestock for fattening and an increase in income from the sale of milk, with the goal of saving money for her children's education.
