Bunusa's story

Bunusa is 60 years old, married and raising two children together with her husband. Bunusa has a higher education. To provide the primary income for her family, Bunusa is involved in animal husbandry, having started 10 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Bunusa's hard work, today her business contains 2 dairy cows and also a 0.74 hectare land plot, where she annually grows corn and wheat. The monthly income amounts to 17,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Bunusa requested a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy cows for fattening up and subsequent resale. Bunusa plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money to repair a barn.
