A loan of $1,450 helped to buy cows.


Ainagul's story

Ainagul is 42 years old, and she and her husband are raising four children. Ainagul has a secondary education. Her family's main source of income is Ainagul's animal husbandry business, which she started 16 years ago with 20,000 somi (KGS) worth of cattle. As a result of her hard work, today Ainagul has two milk cows, one horse, one bull calf, and 40 sheep. Her monthly income is 5,000 somi (KGS).

With an aim to further developing her business, Ainagul applied to the microfinance bank Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 70,000 somi (KGS) to buy cows in order to increase the size of her herd. Ainagul plans to invest the profits from her loan in further increasing the number of cattle she has, as well as save money for her children's future education.
