Astra's story

Astra is 31 years old, married and has three children. Astra has secondary education. As a person she is honest and punctual. Her husband helps her with the business.

As a source of income for the family, Astra has been working with livestock breeding since 2009, after having started this business with 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Astra's persistent work, she currently has one dairy cow, one calf and five sheep on the farm. Her business brings in around 6,000 som (KGS) per month. The income from the business allowed Astra to build a house.

With an aim to further develop her business, Astra turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 25,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of a bull-calf. Astra plans to invest the income from the loan in further developing her business, and in the future she also intends to buy a car.
