Gulfara's story

Gulfara is 52 years old, married and has one son with her husband. Their son is married. Gulfara has a secondary education. To provide the primary source of income for her family, she is involved in animal husbandry, having started 18 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Gulfara's hard work, today her business contains 3 horses, 12 sheep and also 3.92 hectares of land, where she annually grows beans and potatoes. The monthly income amounts to 8,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Gulfara requested a loan in the amount of 20,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to gather her harvest. Gulfara plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and plans to save money to continue educating her grandson.
