Venera's story

Venera is 28 years old and she is married with one son. She has a higher pedagogical education and at the moment she works as a mentor in a kindergarten. As an extra source of income for her family, Venera is involved in raising livestock. She started ten years ago with the purchase of animals for 15,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, her farm now has one dairy cow, 38 sheep and one stallion. Her monthly income is 15,000 som (KGS). With the goal of developing her business further, Venera turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy cows to fatten and resell. She plans to reinvest the income from this loan back into increasing the size of her herd, and she plans on saving up some money to make repairs on her home.
