Aizada's story

Aizada is 34 years old and married. She and her husband have three children, the youngest of whom is just two years old. After graduating from the university in 2000, Aizada began working in animal husbandry to give her family a source of income. She started her business with 6,000 som (KGS) and it now brings in about 4,000 som (KGS) per month from the sale of dairy products and cattle. Today, she has one cow and its calf and five sheep.

With an aim to increasing the number of cattle she has, she applied to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to buy calves and young sheep. Aizada plans to invest the profits from the loan in increasing the size of her herd, which will expand her business. After all, one day she will have to get her children established in life and she wants to get started now so it will be easier later.
