Anar's story

Anar is 54 years old, married, and has raised 5 now-grown children. She has a post-secondary education and is a teacher of German. For 28 years, she worked as a teacher and was awarded the title of "Excellent Educator." As a means of supplementary income, she works as a bookkeeper for a municipal organisation. In 1995, Anar got into animal husbandry as the main source of earnings for the family. She started this business with a sum of only 15,000 Kyrgyzstan Som (KGS), and today it brings in around 12,000 Som per month. For the purpose of further developing her business, Anar has approached Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 120,000 Som to purchase 15 sheep and 1 bull. She plans to use the income generated by this loan to expand her farm. In the future, she wants to build a house and host a wedding for her son.
