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


Alina's story

Alina is 29 years old, married, and, together with her husband, is raising 3 children. Alina has a high school education. Alina's work in animal husbandry and farming, beginning 8 years ago with the purchase of cattle for 20,000 KGS, has been the main source of income for her family. Thanks to Alina's hard work, she now has in her care 2 milk cows, 1 horse, 20 sheep, and 1.6 hectares of land, on which she grows beans every year. Her monthly income is 5,000 KGS. With the goal of further increasing her herd, Alina turned to the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 50,000 KGS to purchase sheep. Alina plans to use profit from the loan to continue to increase the number of domestic animals in her care, and to save money to build a new house.
