Marziya's story

Marziya is 41 yeras old, married, and the mother of three children. Her eldest son is an adult and works in Russia, and the younger is attending school. After the collapse of the USSR and the collective farms, Marziya received her own plot of land. And since she was engaged in cattle breading and cultivating field crops, she started her own business with the acquisition of one cow.

Through her efforts and hard work, Marziya today has a developed farm with two cows and ten head of sheep. The family's monthly income from the sale of milke and livestock comes to 10,000 KGS.

In order to further develop her business, Marziya appealed to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 50,000 Som (KGS) to purchase additional livestock, or more specifically to buy one cow and sheep which will increase the family income. She intends to invest income from this project to further increase her farm and to save for the welfare of the family.
