Sayrabu's story

Sayrabu is 45 years old, married, and the mother of one son. She became involved in animal husbandry in 1998, starting in this business with an initial capital of 12,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her back-breaking and capacious work, she has achieved some measure of success in her business and is now making a monthly profit of 10,000 som (KGS). Sayrabu now owns three dairy cows and one horse. Her husband and her son help her run her business. Eager to further develop her activity, Sayrabu has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" to request a loan of 100,000 som (KGS). She will use her loan to buy one cow and one sheep. Sayrabu plans to invest the earnings from this loan into further increasing her livestock headcount. In the future, she would also like to buy a car.
