Sozul's story

Sozul is 47 years old, a widow and has four children (2 sons and 2 daughters). All of the children live with their mother. After the death of her husband, the family's provider, Sozul became involved in farming and animal husbandry in 1986 in order to find income for her family. She started the business with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard labor and diligent work, Sozul achieved some successes in developing her business and started to earn a monthly profit in the amount of 10,000 som (KGS). Today Sozul's farm contains three dairy cows, one calf, one horse and fifty sheep. Her family is very friendly, and all of the children help the mother with the business. In order to further develop her business, Sozul requested a loan in the amount of 75,000 som (KGS) from "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy purebred livestock. Sozul hopes that she will earn a good income from purebred livestock. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further growing her small business and also plans to buy a car for her son in the future.
