Kachkymbubu's story

Kachkymbubu is 57 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising four children. Her husband is a farmer and their children help with the farm. Kachkymbubu has a secondary specialized education. She graduated from a chef training school. She started her career path in a school cafeteria and for a long time, she worked as a chef in a food court. She currently works in a secondary school cafeteria while simultaneously practicing animal breeding and crop farming with her family.

She started this business 20 years ago, with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Kachkymbubu's hard work, she currently has 1 milk cow, 3 horses and 2 stallions on her farm, as well as a 1.80 hectare plot of land on which she grows beans, potatoes and perennial grasses. Her monthly income is 5,000 som (KGS). Kachkymbubu entered into the agricultural group "Diana." There are two other members of this group, three of them in total. Kachkymbubu is the leader of the group.

For the purpose of further developing her business, Kachkymbubu turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum and Partners." She is requesting a loan in the amount of 80,000 som (KGS) to buy calves to increase the size of her herd. Kachkymbubu plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money to buy a plot of land in order to expand her land even further and cultivate it.
