Kaiyrkul's story

Kaiyrkul is 46 years old, widowed, and has four children. She had a hard time after the death of her husband, but she gathered her strength and decided to keep going for her children. Of her children, her oldest daughter provides material help, since she sells groceries at the market. The rest of the children help around the property. Kaiyrkul provides the primary source of income for her family by raising and selling livestock. She started the business in 2008 by spending 25,000 som (KGS) on buying animals. Thanks to her tireless work and the active participation of her children, she now owns 2 bull calves and four sheep. Her monthly income is 15,000 som (KGS). With the goal of further developing her business, Kaiyrkul is asking the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a 70,000 som (KGS) loan for the purchase of calves for fattening and sale. She plans to invest income from the loan into further expanding her number of livestock, and she also plans to buy a sewing machine for the oldest daughter, who loves to sew.
