Zulaikho's story

Zulaikho is 40 years old, married, and with her spouse is raising three children. Zulaikho is a secondary education. As a main source of income for her family, Zulaikho raises livestock and crops, having begun 15 years ago with a livestock purchase of 10,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Zulaikho currently has on her farm: three dairy cows and 12 sheep, and also works 2.53 hectares of land, where she mainly grows corn and clover. She will sell the resulting crop to wholesalers. Monthly income amounts to 10,000 som (KGS).

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

Zulaikho plan to invest income from the loan in further propagating the quantity of domestic animals.
