Orunbu's story

Orunbu is 40 years old, married, and the mother of two daughters. She became involved in animal husbandry in 2004, starting in this business with an initial capital of 17,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her back-breaking and capacious work, Orunbu achieved some measure of success in the development of her business and eventually started to receive a monthly profit of 8,000 som (KGS).

Orunbu now owns two dairy cows and three horses. Her husband provides passenger transportation services and also helps her run her business.

Eager to further develop her activity, Orunbu has turned to the microfinance institution "Bai Tushum & Partners" to request a loan of 100,000 som (KGS). She will use her loan to buy one cow and one sheep.

Orunbu plans to invest the earnings from this loan into further increasing her livestock headcount. In the future, she would also like to build a new house.
