A loan of $625 helped to buy calves.


Eliza's story

Eliza is 23 years old, married, and she has one daughter whom she raises 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 business three years ago when she bought livestock for 20,000 som (KGS).

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

In order to further develop her farming business, Eliza has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan of 30,000 som (KGS). She will use this loan to buy some calves and therefore increase her livestock headcount. She plans to invest the earnings from this loan into further increasing her herd of domestic animals, and also intends to improve her family's material conditions.
