Gulbarchyn's story

Gulbarchyn is 38 years old, married and raising 4 children. All Gulbarchyn's children are schoolchildren, the eldest son is finishing school. In their free time the children help their mother.

In search of a main source of income for her family, Gulbarchyn has worked with livestock breeding since 1998, after having started this business with 10,000 som (KGS). Currently Gulbarchyn has two cows, two heifers, 30 sheep and four mares, and the livestock breeding brings in around 5,000 som (KGS) per month.

With an aim to further develop her business, Gulbarchyn turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of three cows in order to increase the income from selling milk. Gulbarchyn plans to invest the income from the loan in further developing her business and in the children's education.
