A loan of $2,075 helped buy cows for her farm.


Gulsara's story

Gulsara is 58, married, and is raising 3 children together with her husband. She has a university education, works at a local school as a teacher, and is respected among her fellow villagers. To earn extra money for her family, Gulsara raises livestock, having started 18 years ago with 8,000 somoni worth of livestock. Thanks to her persistent efforts, Gulsara's farm currently has 2 dairy cows, 2 horses, and 10 sheep; additionally, her monthly income has risen to 8,000 somoni. She is seeking a loan of 100,000 somoni from Bai Tushum and Partners to further develop her farm; specifically, she wants to buy more cows, and hopes to use any extra income due to the loan to buy even more livestock for her farm, as well as to save money for her son's wedding reception.
