Turumkan's story

Turumkan is 64 years old and the mother of two children. Turumkan's children are adults and they work in Moscow. Turumkan has a secondary-level education and until 1996, she worked on a collective farm. She is a very calm and hardworking person. In search of a source of income for her family, in 1996 Turumkan started her own business in animal husbandry and farming with a starting capital of 2,000 som (KGS). As a result of her persistence and hard work, Turumkan developed her business to where it now has a monthly income of 6,000 som (KGS) from the sale of milk and dairy products.

To increase her family's income, Turumkan must increase the size of her herd. She applied to Bai tushum & Partners for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS) to buy four cows. Going forward, with the additional cows, Turumkan will increase her milk production.
