Kurmanbubu's story

Kurmanbubu is the leader of the Nurdoolot group. She is 59 years old. Kurmanbubu works as a cleaner in a local school and, as an additional source of income for her family, is engaged in raising livestock and agriculture, starting with a sum of 8,000 som (KGS) in 1993. Through hard work, her farm today has 1.8 hectares of land sown with grain crops, and 25 heads of small livestock.

In order to further develop her business, Kurmanbubu turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS), with the purpose of buying livestock for fattening and resale.

Kurmanbubu plans to invest income from the loan to further developing her business and this year plans to install electric heating in her home.
