Oroskul's story

Oroskul is 46 years old, married and raising two children together with her husband. The children work at a market and help the parents financially. Oroskul has a secondary education. To provide the primary income for her family, she is involved in animal husbandry and farming, having started 14 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Oroskul's hard work, today her business contains 4 dairy cows and also a small land plot, wher she plants perennial herbs and sunflower (seeds). After picking the sunflower harvest (seeds), she processes it and makes sunflower oil for personal consumption. Oroskul has all of the necessary conditions for keeping livestock. They prepare hay and feed for the winter by themselves. The monthly income amounts to 15,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Oroskul requested a loan from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy cows for fattening up and subsequent resale at a market at a high price. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities.
