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

Anarkul's story

Anarkul is 46, married, and has four children. She has a high school education and raises livestock as the main source of income for her family. She started out 16 years ago when she bought cattle for 12,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, Anarkul now has 2 milk cows, 1 horse, and 10 sheep, and earns 5,000 som (KGS) per month. In order to build up her farm, Anarkul asked the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) in order to buy more cattle. With the income from this loan, Anarkul plans to invest in more cattle and save enough money to buy furniture.
