Indira's story

Indira is 36 years old, divorced and has one daughter. She has a higher education. She had worked in Russia as a nurse for a long time. She returned to Kyrgyzstan and is currently looking to be hired as a nurse at a local hospital. She has been involved in animal husbandry for over 13 years, having started this business with 5,000 som (KGS). Today her business contains two bulls. The monthly profit from the business is 7,000 som (KGS). Indira is caring, honest and hardworking. She is raising her daughter alone. In order to provide a decent future for her daughter, Indira requested a loan in the amount of 70,000 som (KGS) from the Microfinance Bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy bulls. Indira plans to invest the earnings from the loan in further increasing livestock quantities in her business and also wants to provide a decent education for her only daughter.
