Jiydegul's story

Jiydegul is 35 years old, married, and together with her husband is raising five children. All the children are in school, close in age, and together at the local school. Jiydegul has a high school education. As a main source of income for her family, Jiydegul raises livestock, having started 15 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 7,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Jiydegul currently has on her homestead: five dairy cows. Her husband is a hired worker, working on order. Monthly cumulative income consists of 3,000 som (KGS).

With the aim of further developing her homestead, Jiydegul turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan - to buy sheep for increasing her livestock count.

Jiydegul plans to invest income from the loan to further propagate the quantity of livestock, and plans to save money to purchase a washing machine.
