Gulsara's story

Gulsara is 45 years old, married, and has 4 children, the youngest of whom is still in school, the oldest are living independently. For many years Gulsara has been engaged in tabacco trade. Since 1987, she has been working in the field of animal husbandry, having started her business with a sum of only 5,000 Kyrgyzstan Som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, her farm is now very developed and brings in a monthly income of around 8,000 Som. She also makes traditional accessories for brides.

For the purpose of further developing her business, Gulsara has approached Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 65,000 Som to buy 15 sheep. She plans to use the income generated by this loan for the future expansion of her farm and to host her son's wedding.
