Salyimabubu's story

Salyimabubu is 39 years old, married, and has two children with her spouse. She has a vocational high school education. The sole source of income for the family is Salyimabubu's business raising animals. She started five years ago by buying 50,000 som (KGS) worth of livestock. Thanks to her tireless work, she currently owns two milk cows and 25 sheep. Her monthly income is 15,000 som (KGS). With the goal of further developing her business, Salyimabubu asked the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a 120,000 som (KGS) loan for the purchase of cows to expand her herd. Salyimabubu plans to invest profit earned from use of the loan into further expanding the number of livestock she owns, and she also plans to save money to finish building a house.
