A loan of $2,575 helped to buy a horse.


Burul's story

Burul is 49 years old, a widow and raising 3 children, the oldest of whom is a college student and the rest are school students, alone after her husband's death. Burul has a higher education and works a supervisor at the village government, but the salary is not enough to provide the whole family with all of the necessities. To provide a secondary income for her family, Burul is involved in animal husbandry, having started 22 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, today her business contains 4 dairy cows, 1 horse and 14 sheep. The monthly income amounts to 17,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Burul requested a loan from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy a horse in order to increase livestock headcount. Burul plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money for her children's future education.
