Gulkhan's story

Gulkhan is 30 years old, married and has one child - a daughter. She has a higher education. She works as an intensive-care doctor at a local hospital. Gulkhan's family is very friendly and hardworking. In search of an additional income for her family, Gulkhan decided to also get involved in breeding livestock. Her husband helps her with the business. Gulkhan has been involved in animal husbandry and farming for over five years, having started this business with 7,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her patience and hard work, today she earns a monthly profit from the business in the amount of 5,000 som (KGS). The business contains two dairy cows and eight sheep. In order to increase livestock headcount, Gulkhan requested a loan in the amount of 120,000 som (KGS) from the Microfinance Bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy cattle for raising. Gulkhan wants to use the earnings from the loan to increase the livestock headcount and achieve a stable financial situation.
