A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase cattle.

Saltanat's story

Saltanat is thirty-two years old, married and has three children. Her main source of income comes from farming, a business she began thirteen years ago, right after her wedding. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, her business, started from a sum of 10,000 KGS, now consists of two milking cows and five sheep, which brings her a monthly income of 7,000 soms.

Wishing to expand her business even further, Saltanat approached "Bai Tushum and Partners" with a request for a loan of 50,000 soms. This loan would allow her to purchase some cattle. Saltanat plans to reinvest the profits from this loan back into her business and also dreams of fixing up her home.
