A loan of $1,050 helped buy sheep.


Rapiysa's story

Rapiysa is 55, married, and raising 4 children together with her husband. She has the equivalent of a high school education, and raises livestock for a living, first starting 20 years ago with 10,000 som worth of animals. Thanks to her persistent efforts, her farm currently has 2 dairy cows, 1 heifer, 30 sheep, 3 horses, and 2 calves, while her monthly income is 6,000 som. Rapiysa, along with 2 other people, is forming a group called Kyzyl-Gul with her as the leader. To further develop her farm, Rapiysa is seeking a loan of 50,000 som from Bai Tushum and Partners to buy sheep. She plans on reinvesting any extra money that the loan will allow her to make back into her farm by buying more livestock, as well as setting some of it aside for home repairs.
