Kanyshai's story

Kanyshai is 44 years old, married and is raising 2 school-aged children. She lives in a remote village in southern Kyrgyzstan. Like many families in the area, Kanyshai and her husband farm, garden, and fatten livestock. They started their business with only 2,000 KGS after the fall of the Soviet Union. Kanyshai raises bulls, and the sale of meat products brings in around 9,000 KGS each month for the family. With the goal of further developing her business, she has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 60,000 KGS to buy additional animals to resell. What's left of the loan she plans to use to buy fertilizer and seeds to plant in the spring. She plans on using the income from the loan to build a barn for her livestock.
