Symbat's story

Symbat is 42 years old, married, and raising two children. She has two wonderful sons who are both in school.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Symbat started her own business in livestock as a main source of income for her family with a starting sum of 5,000 som (KGS). To date, her homestead of cows and sheep brings in about 7,000 som (KGS) per month from the sale of dairy and meat products. In her household, Symbat has one dairy cow, three heads of cattle, and four sheep.

In order to further develop her business, Symbat appealed to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to buy two calves for fattening. Symbat plans to invest income from the loan to building a new barnto ensure comfortable conditions for the livestock, and to realize her dream to buy a family car.
