A loan of $1,275 helped to purchase calves and sheep for fattening.

Uruya's story

Uruya is a 52-year-old widow who has raised 7 children. For 11 years now, she has been working in animal husbandry, having started her business with a sum of 12,000 Kyrgyzstan Som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, her farm now includes 3 cows, 4 horses, 2 colts, 1 calf, 35 sheep with lambs, and 1 goat with a kid. Her monthly income from the re-sale of cattle is 17,000 Som. For the purpose of developing her business, Uruya has approached Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 60,000 Som to purchase calves and sheep for fattening. She plans to use the income generated by this loan to further increase the number of domestic cattle she has.
