A loan of $625 helped to buy sheep.

Zyinat's story

Zyinat is 43 years old, married, and is raising five children. Zyinat has a specialized high school education. As a main source of income for her family, Zyinat is engaged in raising livestock, having started ten years ago with the purchase of livestock at 15,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Zyinat's hard work, she today has on her homestead: three horses, a dairy cow, and 15 sheep. Her husband actively helps around the farm. Zyinat's monthly income is 6,000 som (KGS).

With the aim of further developing her homestead, Zyinat turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 30,000 som (KGS) to buy sheep to expand the count of livestock on her homestead.

Zyinat plans to invest income from the loan to further augment the quantity of domestic animals and plans to save money for home repairs.
