Tamara's story

Tamara is 41 years old, married, and together with her husband is raising seven children. Tamara has a high school education. As a main source of income for her family, Tamara is involved in raising livestock, having started 20 years ago with the purchase of cattle for 10,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Tamara currently has on her homestead: three dairy cows, one calf, and 32 sheep. Monthly income consists of 5,000 som (KGS). Tamara is the group leader of the borrower group "Tamara" which consists of two other people.

With the aim of further developing her homestead, Tamara turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy calves for increasing the count of cattle.

Tamara plans to invest income from the loan in further increasing the quantity of domestic animals, and plans to save money to buy a family automobile.
