Tynar's story

Tynar is 71 years old and a widow. After her husband’s death, she raised her son on her own. She also manages her own business. Tynar has a college degree; for many years, she worked as a teacher at a local school. She has educated several generations of students; many still remember her and talk warmly of her. As a main source of income for her family, Tynar raises livestock, having launched 40 years ago by buying cattle for 3,000 KGS. Thanks to Tynar’s hard work, her farm today includes four dairy cows, two calves, and 30 sheep. Her monthly income is 10,000 KGS. In order to develop her business further, Tynar has turned to the “Bai Tushum & Partners microfinance institution for a loan in the amount of 60,000 KGS to buy cows to increase her cattle headcount. Tynar plans to use the resulting income for a further increase of her livestock.
