Ulukbu's story

Ulukbu is 43 years old, married and has five children together with her husband. Ulukbu has secondary education. As a main income for her family, Ulukbu works with livestock breeding, after having started this business 18 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 15,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Ulukbu's persistent work, her farm currently has three dairy cows, three sheep and one stallion. The monthly income is 12,000 som (KGS). With an aim to further develop her business, Ulukbu turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan to purchase cows to fatten and subsequently resell at the market at a higher price. Ulukbu plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of livestock.
