A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a cow.

Ainagul's story

Ainagul is 54 years old, married and raising 3 children together with her husband. Two of her older sons are married and live separately with their families, and the youngest lives with Ainagul. Her husband works as a security guard at a kindergarten and has a set salary. Ainagul has a secondary education; she is very energetic and happy. To provide the primary income for her family, she is involved in animal husbandry, having started 35 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Ainagul's hard work, today her business contains 4 dairy cows. The monthly income amounts to 10,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Ainagul requested a loan from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy a cow in order to increase livestock headcount. Ainagul plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money to help her son build a house.
