Shakhnoza's story

Shakhnoza is 30 years old, married, and is raising two children with her husband. Shakhnoza has a high school education. As a main source of income for her family, Shakhnoza is involved in raising livestock, having started six years ago with the purchase of cattle for 15,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Shakhnoza today has on her homestead: two dairy cows and five sheep. Monthly income comes to 8,000 som (KGS).

With the aim of further developing her homestead, Shakhnoza turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to buy a cow for increasing her count of cattle.

Shakhnoza plans to invest income from the loan in further increasing the count of domestic livestock, and plans to save money for further education of her children.
