Elmira's story

Elmira is a 29-year-old married mother of three. While searching for additional sources of income for her family in 2005, Elmira started her own animal husbandry business. Her initial investment was 20,000 som. Successful work in animal husbandry and the sale of diary products has allowed Elmira to grow fodder on a 1.16 hectare plot. This enables her to feed her own cattle as well as to earn extra money selling fodder.

With future business development in mind, Elmira turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a 30,000 som loan to purchase a dairy cow in order to increase her income from milk sales. Elmira plans to renovate her home with the additional income.
