Topchugul's story

Topchugul is 49 years old, not married, and raising three foster children by herself. Topchugul has secondary education. As a main source of income for her family, Topchugul works with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation, after having started 23 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Topchugul's persistent work, her farm currently has one dairy cow and also a plot of land of 1.0 hectares. Here she grows sweet corn every year. The monthly income is 11,000 som (KGS).

With an aim to further develop her business, Topchugul turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 135,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of heifers to fatten and breed. Topchugul plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of household animals. She also plans to save money for the marriage of her foster son.
