A loan of $2,100 helped to purchase more cattle.


Sakish's story

Sakish is 56 years old, widowed, and has three children. In 1996 in search of a source of income for her family, Sakish began a business in raising animals with savings in the amount of 5,000 som (KGS). Through tenacity and perseverance, Sakish today has on her farm one cow and one bull. Sakish works 0.84 hectares of land for a monthly income of about 15,000 som (KGS) from the sale of dairy products, resold cattle, and crops.

In order to further develop her business, Sakish turned to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy additional heads of young cattle.

In the future, Sakish wants to expand the farm and her business.
