Medina's story

Medina is 37 years old. She is married, and she and her husband, Samagan, are raising four children. Medina has a secondary education. Immediately after graduation, she married Samagan. Her husband is a taxi driver. He makes a small but consistent income. Medina is not idle. She is busy with household chores and children. Medina farms and keeps livestock to provide the family's main source of income. Medina started farming seventeen years ago when she bought 2,000 KGS worth of livestock. Thanks to Medina's hard work, her farm now boasts one bull, forty sheep, and three hectares of land where she grows beans and perennial herbs. Medina's husband helps her a great deal. Her monthly income is 10,000 KGS. In order to further develop her farm, Medina approached the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan to buy cattle for breeding. Medina plans to invest profits from the loan into further increasing her livestock and to save enough to renovate her house.
