A loan of $625 helped buy a bull.


Kulurukan's story

Kulurukan is 55 years old and a widow. After her husband's death, she has been raising three children and running her own farm. Kulurukan has a secondary education. The family's primary income comes from animal husbandry. Kulurukan started her farm 29 years ago when she purchased cattle with 2,000 KGS. Because of Kulurukan's hard work, her farm now has two foals and 0.96 hectares of a land share, which she uses to grow potatoes and clover every year. She earns a monthly income of 7,000 KGS. In order to further develop her farm, Kulurukan has asked the microfinance bank Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 30,000 KGS to buy a bull for cattle breeding. Kulurukan plans to invest money she makes from the loan to increase the number of domestic animals she owns and to save enough money to repair her house.
