Gulsana's story

Gulsana is 32 years old, married, and raising four children with her husband. Gulsana has a higher education. She works as a lead social development specialist. To make extra money for her family, Gulsana also works in animal husbandry. She started ten years ago, buying cattle with 15,000 KGS. Thanks to Gulsana's hard work, her farm currently boasts one milk cow, one mare, three calves, and a plot of land measuring 0.30 hectares where she grows peppers, potatoes, and clover. Her monthly income is 6,000 KGS. Gulsana is a member of the group Kireshe. This group includes two other people. Gulsana is the third member of the group. To further develop her farm, Gulsana asked the microfinance bank Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 55,000 KGS to buy a cow for breeding. Gulsana plans to invest profits she makes from the loan into further expanding her livestock.
