A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase cattle.


Sharipa's story

Sharipa is 42 years old and the mother of four children. As the main source of income, Sharipa began to engage in raising animals in 1995, starting with a sum of 10,000 som spent on the purchase of heifers. Through hard work, Sharipa today has a developing homestead.

Beside the business, as an additional source of income Sharipa works as a cook in a cafe.

In order to further develop her business, Sharipa appealed to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to purchase cattle, as livestock prices have declined.

Sharipa plans to invest income from the loan to further increase the number of livestock, and in the near future plans to educate the children.
