A loan of $2,075 helped to buy cows.

Kenjetay's story

Kenjetay is 50 years old, married, and she and her husband are raising 4 children. Kenjetay has a secondary education and her family's main source of income is Kenjetay's animal husbandry business, which she started 27 years ago with the purchase of 1,500 somi (KGS) worth of cattle. Thanks to Kenjetay's hard work, today she has 1 milking cow, 1 mare, and 1.20 HA of land where every year she grows peppers, beans, cabbage, and clover. Her monthly income comes to 12,000 somi (KGS).

With an aim to developing her business further, Kenjetay applied to microfinance bank Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 100,000 somi (KGS) to buy cows. Kenjetay plans to invest the profits from her loan in further increasing the size of her herd and to save up money for her children's education.
