Ainur's story

Ainur is 60 years old and a widow. She has raised six children. Ainur's children are grown up, and she lives with her son who helps his mother in the household. Ainur has fourteen grandchildren.

In search of a source of funding for her family, Ainur started her business of livestock breeding already in 1990, in the period of the collapse of the Soviet Union, after having used a starting sum of 10,000 som (KGS). Successfully working within the sphere of livestock breeding and field crop cultivation has given very good results. Ainur also grows fodder, which lets her provide fodder for her livestock and gives and additional income from the sale. Ainur grows potatoes on her field too, next to the fodder. She owns 3.0 hectares of land and three heads of cattle. The family has up to 15,000 som (KGS) per month.

To further develop her business, Ainur turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of potato seeds and fodder seeds. Ainur plans to improve her business through the income from the loan. Ainur shared with us that she plans to give her grandchild an education.
