A loan of $1,250 helped to buy young bulls.


Gulbara's story

Gulbara is 53 years old, married, and raising three children with her husband. She has a secondary education. She is involved in animal husbandry, an activity which provides her family with its main source of income. She started in this field 17 years ago when she bought livestock for 10,000 som (KGS).

Thanks to her hard work, Gulbara now owns two dairy cows, two young bulls, seven sheep and one horse. She makes a monthly income of 5,000 som (KGS).

In order to further develop her farming business, Gulbara has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan of 60,000 som (KGS). She will use this loan to buy some young bulls and increase her cattle headcount. She plans to invest the earnings from this loan into further increasing her livestock headcount. She also intends to save some money to continue to finance her children's education.
