A loan of $2,750 helped to buy calves for subsequent resale.


Syrga's story

Syrga is 54 years old, married and raising five children together with her husband. Syrga has a secondary education. To provide the primary source of income for her family, she is involved in animal husbandry, having started 23 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Syrga's hard work, today her business contains 10 dairy cows. The monthly income amounts to 15,000 som (KGS) from sales of milk. In order to further develop her business, Syrga requested a loan in the amount of 135,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy calves for subsequent resale at a market at a high price. Syrga plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities.
