Sonunbubu's story

Sonunbubu is 67 years old, a widow, raised four children by herself after her husband's death and also runs her own business. Sonunbubu has a secondary education. To provide the primary income for her family, Sonunbubu is involved in animal husbandry, having started 13 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Sonunbubu's hard work, today her business contains 1 dairy cow, 10 sheep and also 2.0 hectares of land, where she annually grows beans and potatoes. The monthly income amounts to 5,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Sonunbubu requested a loan in the amount of 120,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy calves in order to increase livestock headcount. Sonunbubu plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities.
