Kyzygul's story

Kyzygul is 66 years old and married. She and her husband have four children. She has a secondary education and is involved in animal husbandry, an activity which provides the main source of income for her family. She started in this business 32 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 1,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her very hard work, she now has four dairy cows and 15 goats. She makes a monthly income of 9,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, she has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan of 135,000 som (KGS). She will use her loan to buy calves, in order to increase her livestock headcount. She plans to re-invest the profits from this loan back into her business by purchasing additional livestock. She is also planning to save enough money for the construction of a new house.
