Zamira's story

Zamira is 52 years old, married and raises five children together with her husband. Zamira has secondary education. As a main income for her family, Zamira works with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation, after having started this business 30 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Zamira's persistent work, her farm currently has one horse and also a plot of land of the size of 0.40 hectares, on which she every year grows onions, sweet corn and potatoes to sell. The monthly income is 7,000 som (KGS).

With an aim to further develop her business, Zamira turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 40,000 som (KGS), to purchase sheep to fatten and consequently sell at the market at a higher price. Zamira plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of household animals and plans to save money for building a new barn for the livestock.
