Bakhtygul's story

Bakhtygul is 51 years old, married, and together with her husband raised four daughters. Bakhtygul has a high school education. As a main source of income for her family, Bakhtygul has been involved in raising livestock, having started 31 years ago with the purchase of cattle at 7,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Bakhtygul today has on her homestead: four dairy cows, five steers, two horses, and six sheep. Monthly income reaches 9,000 som (KGS).

With the aim of further developing her homestead, Bakhtygul turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS) to purchase steers to increase the count of cattle.

Bakhtygul plans to invest income from the loan to further increase the count of domestic livestock and plans to save money to build a new barn for keeping cattle.
