Burulcha's story

Burulcha is 46 years old, married and raising two children together with her husband. Burulcha has a secondary education. To provide the primary source of income for her family, she is involved in animal husbandry, having started 7 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Burulcha's hard work, today her business contains one dairy cow, one mare, five sheep and ten goats. The monthly income amounts to 5,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Burulcha requested a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy calves for fattening up for a subsequent resale at a market at a high price. Burulcha plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities.
