Atyrkul's story

Atyrkul is 57 years old, married and raising six children together with her husband. Atyrkul has a secondary education. To provide the primary income for her family, Atyrkul is involved in animal husbandry, having started 33 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 14,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Atyrkul's hard work, today her business contains 4 dairy cows, 1 horse, 3 goats and 5 sheep. The monthly income amounts to 14,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Atyrkul requested a loan in the amount of 135,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy mares in order to increase livestock headcount. Atyrkul plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money to buy a house.
