Kanykey's story

Kanykey is 46 years old, married and raising three children together with her husband. Kanykey has secondary education. As the main income for her family, Kanykey works with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation, after having started 13 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Kanykey's persistent work, her farm currently has two dairy cows and 10 sheep. She also has a plot of land of 0.85 hectares on which she plants sunflower and sweet corn. The monthly income is 10,000 som (KGS).

With an aim to further develop her business, Kanykey turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 110,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of sheep to fatten and resell. Kanykey plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of household animals, and plans to save money for purchasing land for building a house on.
