Asimjan's story

Asimjan is 65 years old and, together with her husband, is raising 3 children. Asimjan has a secondary education. Beginning 40 years ago with the purchase of cattle for 100 KGS, Asimjan's engagement in animal husbandry has served as the primary source of income for her family. Thanks to the hard work of Asimjan, she currently has in her care: 1 milk cow, 1 stallion, and 1 mare. Her monthly income is 10,000 KGS. With the goal of further developing her farm, Asimjan turned to the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 40,000 KGS to purchase sheep for breeding. WIth the earnings from her loan Asimjan plans to continue to increase the size of her herd of cattle, and also plans to accumulate funds for on-going construction on her house.
