Nuriya's story

Nuriya is 29 years old, married, and the mother of three school-aged and pre-school aged children. Although she has a degree in education, she has unfortunately never worked in her field of specialty.

In order to provide a source of income for her family, Nuriya started her own farming and livestock fattening business in 2002, starting with an initial capital of 20,000 som (KGS). Her business currently brings a monthly profit of 8,000 som (KGS) and she owns one dairy cow, one horse, one sheep and one goat. She also owns three hectares (7.4 acres) of land on which she essentially grows beans, potatoes and perennial grass.

In order to further develop her activity, she has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 60,000 som (KGS), which will be used for the purchase of sheep.

Nuriya plans to use the earnings from her loan to increase her livestock headcount and to build an additional barn to keep her farm animals.
