Gulsan's story

Gulsan is 42 years old, married and raising three children together with her husband. Gulsan has a secondary-specialized education. To provide the primary income for her family, Gulsan is involved in animal husbandry, having started 17 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Gulsan's hard work, today her business contains 2 dairy cows, 1 bull and 40 sheep. The monthly income amounts to 13,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Gulsan requested a loan in the amount of 130,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy calves in order to increase livestock headcount. Gulsan plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money to continue educating her children.
