Alymkan's story

Alymkan is 49 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising three children. Alymkan has a secondary education. As the main source of income for her family, Alymkan practices livestock breeding. She started this business 8 years ago, with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Alymkan's hard work, she currently has 5 milk cows and 7 sheep on her farm. Her monthly income is 15,000 som (KGS). For the purpose of further developing her business, Alymkan turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum and Partners." She is requesting a loan in the amount of 80,000 som (KGS) to buy cows to increase the size of her herd. Alymkan plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money to build a new house for her son.
