Aiymkan's story

Aiymkan is a 60 year old widow with three sons. She has been raising livestock since 2001 when she started her business with 10,000 somoni. Thanks to her hard work she is now a successful farmer and has 3 milk cows, 1 calf, and 15 head of sheep and goats. Aiymkan earns 10,000 somoni per month. Her goal is to increase her number of livestock and expand her business. She took out a loan with Bai Tushum and Partners for 100,000 somoni in order to buy cattle and plans to build an additional cattle shed with her earnings.
