Because of her hard work Jamal now has two milk cows and four sheep. Her monthly income is 6,000 som. With the purpose to further grow her business Jamal has come to the microfinance bank Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 20,000 KGS to buy a calf to increase the headcount of cattle. Jamal plans to invest the income from the loan into further increase of the headcount of livestock and also save money for her children's education.
