Kanaiym's story

Kanaiym is 51 years old, married and is raising four children with her husband. She has a high school degree and the main source of income for the family is their livestock. Kanaiym started the livestock business 18 years ago, by buying a few animals with 15,000 som (KGS). Because of her hard work and perseverance, the family now owns six sheep and a horse. The monthly profits from the animals are 8,000 som (KGS). In order to further expand the livestock business Kanaiym has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and partners" for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS). She will use the money to buy more sheep for the herd. Kanaiym plans to continue investing the profits from this expansion back into her livestock business and will also be saving some of the money to purchase a car.
