Burmakan's story

Burmakan is 63 years old. She is a widow. After her husband’s death, she raised her children alone. She also has been running a farm on her own. Burmakan has received secondary education. As a main source of income for her family, Burmakan raises livestock, having launched this business 27 years ago by buying livestock for 5,000 KGS. Thanks to Burmakan’s hard work, her farm now includes three dairy cows, four heifers, one horse and one goat. Her monthly income is 16,000 KGS. In order to develop her farm further, Burmakan has turned to the Bai Tushum & Partners microfinance bank for a loan in the amount of 80,000 KGS to increase her headcount by buying cattle. Burmakan plans to use the revenue from her loan for an additional increase of her livestock.
