Salamat's story

Salamat is 26 years old, married, and raising 2 children, the youngest of whom is 4 years of age. Salamat has post-secondary education: after graduating from high school, she enrolled in the Agrarian Institute to study economics and management. Since 2006, Salamat has been raising livestock and cultivating crops, having started her business with an initial investment of 20,000 som (KGS). Presently, she keeps 2 horses and 1 cow. Her income from resale of livestock and sales of milk amounts to roughly 5,000 som (KGS) per month. Salamat also works 0.3 hectares of land where she annually plants beans.

In order to continue developing her business, Salamat has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to purchase 1 cow and other livestock. She plans to invest her profits from this loan into further increasing the size of her herd, as well as expanding the area of the land she cultivates.
