Svetlana's story

Svetlana, 54 years old, raises two grandchildren. Svetlana, as the main source of income for her family, is involved in animal husbandry. She started in 2006 with the purchase of cattle for 15,000 KGS. Thanks to the hard work of Svetlana, in her household today, she has one head of cattle with offspring, 15 sheep, 2.04 hectares of land sown with potatoes, sainfoin and grains, and a monthly income of 8,000 KGS.

In order to further develop her business, Svetlana asked the microfinance organization "Bai Tushum and Partners" for a loan in the amount of 20,000 KGS to increase the number of livestock by purchasing agricultural seeds. Svetlana plans to invest income from the loan in further increasing the number of her domestic animals.
