A loan of $825 helped to buy a cow.


Alina's story

Alina is 41 years old, married, and a mother of three small children (one daughter and two sons). She has a degree. Her oldest daughter just entered the first grade. Since 2007, Alina has worked in agriculture and with livestock, having started her business with 20,000 KGS. The monthly income for the family is around 8,000 KGS. Alina's husband helps her run the business. Thanks to her hard work and perseverance, today Alina has one dairy cow, one calf, two horses and ten sheep. The profits from the business have allowed Alina to breed her animals which have provided a way to improve the family's circumstances. With the goal of further developing her business, Alina has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 40,000 KGS to buy a cow. Alina plans to use the income from her loan to further invest in her business and increase the number of animals in her care.
