A loan of $825 helped to buy a cow.


Jypargul's story

Jypargul is 33 years old, married, and has four young children. Her spouse Almazbek is an independent contractor and takes individual construction orders seasonally. Jypargul has a high school education and raises farm animals as the main income for her family. She began five years ago when she purchased cattle for 3,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, she now has two dairy cows. In the winter she sells milk from home, which provides a pretty good income. She earns 10,000 som (KGS) per month. In order to continue developing her farm, Jypargul asked the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan to buy a cow for breeding. Jypargul plans to use the profit from the loan to invest in more livestock and to save enough money to repair her barn.
