Bakhtygul's story

Bakhtygul is 52 years old and a widow. After the death of her husband she is raising three children by herself, and she also manages her own business. Bakhtygul has secondary education. As a main source of income for her family, Bakhtygul works with livestock breeding, after having started 31 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 1,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Bakhtygul's persistent work, her farm currently has one dairy cow and 10 sheep. The monthly income is 10,000 som (KGS). With an aim to further develop her farm, Bakhtygul turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of heifers to increase the number of livestock. Bakhtygul plans to invest the income in further increasing the number of household animals, and also plans to save money for her son's wedding.
