A loan of $2,050 helped buy cattle for fattening and resale.

Kanzada's story

Kanzada is 62, unmarried, and raising 4 children. All her children are married and are migrant workers in Russia except for her oldest, who lives with her and helps her with her daily chores. Her other children periodically send money back home to help support their mother. She has the equivalent of a high school education, and is a crop- and livestock farmer. She first started raising livestock 34 years ago with 3,000 som worth of animals, and, thanks to her persistence, currently has 2 dairy cows and 2 hectares of land for growing corn and clover (which she uses to feed her cows), while her monthly income has risen to nearly 15,000 som.

To further develop her farm, Kanzada is seeking a loan from Bai Tushum & Partners to buy some bull calves, which she plans on raising and fattening to resell at a profit. She hopes to use any future profits due to the loan to continue to buy even more livestock for her farm.
