A loan of $1,250 helped to buy nitrate.


Asilbubu's story

Asilbubu is 61 years old and she and her husband are raising one son. Her husband and son help her with her farm. Her familiy's main source of income is Asilbubu's animal husbandry and farming business, which she started 28 years ago with 5,000 somi (KGS) worth of cattle. As a result of her hard work, Asilbubu now has a horse, a calf, ten sheep, and 1.80 hectares of land where every year she grows peppers, beans, and clover. Her monthly income comes to 12,000 somi (KGS).

With an aim to further developing her business, Asilbubu applied to microfinance bank Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 60,000 somi (KGS) to buy nitrate fertilizer. Asilbubu plans to use the income from the loan to invest in more cattle and she intends to do home repairs.
