Damira is 34 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising four children. All of her children are little, with the oldest being 11 years old and the youngest, 2 years old. Damira has a higher education. She works as a teacher at a local school. She has a small salary. Her husband works odd jobs as he cannot find full-time employment.

As an additional source of income for her family, Damira practices livestock breeding. She started this business 14 years ago, with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Damira's hard work, she currently has 7 milk cows, 1 horse and 6 sheep on her farm. Damira is very hardworking. Everyday she gets up at the crack of dawn and gets her children ready for school. Then she cuts hay and waters her livestock, goes to work, returns home for lunch, feeds her livestock again, meets her children at school, brings them home, feeds them dinner and finishes her work in the barn.

She is very motivated and believes that by working hard and consistently on her animal breeding business, she will be able to improve her family's wellbeing and provide a better future for her children. Her monthly income is 10,000 som (KGS). For the purpose of further developing her business, Damira turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum and Partners." She is requesting a loan to buy cows to increase the size of her herd. Damira plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money for the future education of her children.
