A loan of $2,050 helped to buy cows.


Ainur's story

Ainur is a 57-year-old widow who has raised two children by herself. She has a higher education and is involved in animal husbandry, an activity which provides her family with its main source of income. She started in this field 16 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 15,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Ainur's hard work, her farming business now comprises 12 dairy cows, five horses, 30 sheep, as well as 2.76 hectares of land on which she grows potatoes and sainfoin for her own use and for resale. She makes a monthly income of 15,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Ainur has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners". She is taking a loan to buy cows and increase her livestock headcount. Ainur plans to reinvest the profits from her loan to further increase her numbers of farm animals. She is also planning to save enough money to repair her house.
