Isman's story

Isman was born to a simple family of farmers in the city of Osh. He completed school and became a meteorologist. Isman has six children - three sons and three daughters. Four of his six children are grown and work in various fields, while two of his children are still in school.

In 1999, Isman's family decided to start a farm. Thus, they began breeding cattle. Hard work and tireless effort helped Isman develop his business. His 8,000 som monthly profit from the business allowed him to educate his children and pay for his family's daily expenses.

Isman's youngest children are currently living with him. Together with their mother, his children help him with the farm. Today Isman owns 54 heads of sheep and goats.

With the goal of increasing his overall head of sheep and goats, Isman turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a 100,000 som loan. Isman dreams of one day marrying his son and helping him build a home. In the future, he would like to give his youngest children a university education.
