Ratkhan's story

Ratkhan is 61 years old, widowed, and has 5 children (2 sons and 3 daughters). After the death of her husband, who was the breadwinner of the family, Ratkhan became involved in animal husbandry in order to provide for her family. She started the business with 10,000 somons (KGS). Thanks to her tireless labor and hard work, Ratkhan achieved some success and has been receiving a monthly profit of 10,000 somons (KGS). Today, Ratkhan has 4 dairy cows and 30 sheep on her farm. Her youngest son helps her with the business. Her oldest son lives separately and helps out financially. In order to further grow her business, Ratkhan asked the Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum and Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 somons (KGS) for the purchase of one cow and some sheep. Ratkhan plans to invest the income from the loan in order to further increase in the number of livestock on her farm, and plans to build a new home in the future.
