Kenjekan's story

Kenjekan is 50 years old, a widow and has four children. Three of her children are grown and independent, and Kenjekan's daughter, who attends 10th grade, lives with her. Kenjekan has a higher education. She has been working the night shift at the hospital for 32 years and is very well liked by her colleagues. They says that she is a kind and hardworking woman. To provide an additional source of income for her family, Kenjekan got involved in animal husbandry and farming in 2008, having started this business with 50,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her persistent and diligent work, Kenjekan's business contains 3 horses, 4 cows, 15 sheep, and also a land plot of 1.20 hectares, where she plants clover, beans and strawberries. Her business yields about 12,000 som (KGS) per month. The profits from the business allowed Kenjekan to marry off her children and provide for them. In order to further develop her business, Kenjekan requested a loan in the amount of 125,000 som (KGS) from the Microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy a horse. Kenjekan plans to invest the earnings from the loan in a continued increase of her business, and also wants to give her daughter a decent education.
