The business, started with an initial sum of 15,000 som (KGS), today yields from 10,000 som (KGS) per month from sales of milk, dairy products and sales of livestock. After her husband's death, she was left alone, but luckily her sons help her, and together they continue this business. At the present time, Jenishgul's business has one dairy cow and three sheep. In order to further develop her business, Jenishgul requested a loan in the amount of 120,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy five bulls for fattening up. After fattening them up, she would be able to sell them at a local market. She plans to invest the earnings into further growing her livestock headcount and dreams of building a house for her son.
