Gulzat's story

Gulzat is forty-four, unmarried, and has one grown daughter. As the family's breadwinner, she began earning her living in livestock. After starting out with 20,000KGS in 2005, the farm now brings in nearly 12,000KGS per month from milk products and resale of livestock. Thanks to her own tenacity, Gulzat's farm is well-developed. She has turned to Bai Tushum for a loan of 60,000KGS so she can further develop the business by purchasing feed for her sheep. She plans to put money into growing the business by getting more head of livestock. Her future plans include building a house.
