Kulupa's story

Kulupa is 60 years old, a pensioner, married, and with her husband has eight children. Kulupa has a secondary education. As a main source of income for her family, Kulupa raises livestock, having begun 18 years ago with a livestock purchase of 5,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Kulupa currently has on her homestead: two dairy cows, two horses, and 20 sheep. Monthly income amounts to 14,000 som (KGS). With the aim of further developing her homestead, Kulupa turned to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan - to buy horses for fattening and subsequent resale at the market at a premium.

Kulupa plans to invest income from the loan in further propagation of the quantity of domestic livestock.
