A loan of $1,050 helped to buy sheep.

Shakerkhan's story

Shakerkhan is 61 years old, married, and raising four children with her husband. She has a specialized secondary education and is involved in animal husbandry, an activity which provides her family with its main source of income. She started in this business 25 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, Shakerkhan now owns two dairy cows and two horses. She makes a monthly income of 5,000 som (KGS).

Eager to further develop her business, Shakerkhan has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" and requested a loan of 50,000 som (KGS). She will use her loan to buy some sheep in order to increase her livestock headcount. She plans to invest the earnings from her loan into further increasing her number of farm animals. She is also planning to save enough money to perform some repairs in her house.
