Burulsun's story

Burulsun is 53 years old and is married with five children. Four of her children are married and living independently. Her youngest daughter lives at home with her parents and helps around the farm. Burulsun has a high school education, and she is engaged in raising livestock as the main source of income for her family. She started this business 36 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 5,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Burulson now has three cows, 15 sheep, 15 goats and one horse on her farm. Her monthly income is 15,000 som (KGS). With the goal of developing her business further, Burulsun has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan to buy sheep so she can increase her head of livestock. She plans to use the income from this loan to further increase her head of livestock on her farm and to save money for her youngest daughter's education.
