A loan of $800 helped to purchase sheep for fattening and reselling.

Rakhat's story

Rakhat is 30 years old, married and raising three children together with her husband. Rakhat has secondary education. She works as a paid cleaner at the local school, however this income is not enough. Since 2001, as an additional income for her family, Rakhat has worked with livestock breeding as well, after purchasing livestock for 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Rakhat's persistent work, her farm currently has two dairy cows and six sheep. The monthly income is 10,000 som (KGS).

With an aim to further develop her business, Rakhat turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan to purchase sheep to fatten and subsequently resell at the market at a higher price. Rakhat plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of livestock.
