Bermet's story

Bermet is 57 years old, married, and she raised four children. With the collapse of the USSR, difficult times began for everyone, and each chose his own way to provide food for his family. Having received her own plot from the collective farm in 1990, Bermet began a business in animal husbandry and farming with 3,000 som (KGS). Today, Bermet has three milk cows, six sheep, and 3.42 hectares of irrigated land where she grows wheat, sainfoin, and potatoes. Nowadays, Bermet's main priority is to provide her children with a firm foundation.

With plans to further develop her business, Bermet applied to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy sheep and bulls, which she will fatten and later sell. Bermet plans to invest the profits in further growing her business and in building a home on her own land.
