Tazagul's story

Tazagul is 50 years old, a widow and raised 3 children alone. Her oldest daughter is married, second son is married and works in Russia, and helps the mother financially by sending a portion of his salary to her in Kyrgyzstan, and the youngest son lives with Tazagul. He is unemployed. Tazagul has a secondary education. She is very kind, responsive, hardworking and complaisant. Any work gets done in her hands. To provide the primary income for her family, Tazagul is involved in animal husbandry, having started 29 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 4,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Tazagul's hard work, today her business contains 2 dairy cows, 17 sheep and also a 1.0 hectare land plot, where she grows corn, and also has a small garden at home, where she grows tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins. She grows corn to provide her livestock with the feed. The monthly income amounts to 15,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Tazagul requested a loan from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy bulls for fattening up and subsequent resale at a market at a high price. Tazagul has all of the right conditions at home to fatten up livestock. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money to complete construction of her house.
