A loan of $2,075 helped to buy sheep and horses.


Ibadat's story

Ibadat is a 53 year-old widow. Since the death of her husband, she has been raising five children by herself. She has a college degree. As the family's only provider, Izbadat has been raising livestock for a living. She started the business ten years ago, when she bought some animals for 15,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, her farm now has three horses and 15 head of sheep. The business earns 6000 som (KGS) per month. With the goal of expanding her business, Ibadat turned to the Microlending bank Bai-Tushum & Partners for a loan in the amount of 1000,000 som (KGS) to increase her livestock herd by purchasing more sheep and horses. Ibadat plans to invest the proceeds from the loan into increasing her livestock herd, and plans to save money to repair her house.
