Shaken's story

Shaken is 63 years old and she is a widow. After the death of her husband, she raised four children and ran the household by herself. Shaken has a high school education and as the main source of income for her family she raises livestock, which she started doing 25 years ago with the purchase of animals for 1,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Shaken now has five dairy cows, three calves, 15 sheep and one horse on her farm. Her monthly income is 20,000 som (KGS). With the goal of developing her business further, Shaken has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to buy bulls to increase her head of livestock. She plans to use the income from this loan to further increase her head of livestock, and she plans on saving up money to make repairs on her home.
