Gulsaana's story

Gulsaana is 54 years old and married with five children. All of her children are grown except her youngest daughter who is still in school. Gulsaana has a grandson who is two years old. She is a good, peaceful and optimistic person. Thanks to her efforts and diligence, Gulsaana's business has good potential. She raises livestock for resale and she is also involved in agriculture, working 1.5 hectares of land annually. Since the main crop of the area is beans, Gulsaana grows them as well as perennial grasses. Having started her business in 1995 with 10,000 KGS, she now has ten head of sheep, two horses, two cows and two bulls. Her monthly income is 10,000 som (KGS). She has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 60,000 som (KGS). On receiving her loan, she plans to purchase ewes so she can increase the size of her herd. Gulsaana told us that she wants to fulfill an old dream, which is to purchase a car.
