Asya's story

Asya is 57 and a widow, raising four children and taking care of her farm by herself after the death of her husband. Asya has a specialist high school education and raises animals and crops as her family's primary source of income, a business she began 14 years ago with the purchase of cattle for 15,000 KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Asya's farm now contains two milking cows, two calves and five sheep, with monthly income at 10,000 KGS. With the goal of further developing her farm, Asya has turned to microfinance bank "Bai Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 100,000 KGS to purchase steers for fattening and then reselling at the market for a higher price. Asya plans to use income from the loan for further augmentation of the size of her herd.
