Asel's story

Asel is 30 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising three children. Asel has a university education. As the main source of income for her family, Asel practices animal husbandry. She started this business 10 years ago, with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Asel's hard work, she currently has one milk cow and one horse on her farm. Her monthly income is 5,000 som (KGS). For the purpose of further developing her business, Asel turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum and Partners." She is requesting a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) to buy cows to increase the size of her herd. Asel plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money for her children's future education.
