Kalbubu's story

Kalbubu is a 68 year old widow. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union she lost her job and to find a steady income to support her family she began farming and raising animials. She began her business with 10,000 somoni. Thankfully through her back-breaking labor and tireless work Kalbubu achieved a little progress and began to make a profit of 10,000 somoni a month. Nowadays on the farm Kalbubu has two cows and twenty sheep. She also had allotted land for planting and processing beans. In order to further develop her business, Kalbubu is appealing to "Bai Tushum" for a loan of 40,000 somoni to buy fertilizer and fuel. Income from the loan Kalbubu plans to invest in the development of their small business.
