A loan of $1,000 helped to buy heifers.


Aichurok's story

Aichurok is 65 years old and a widow. After her husband’s death, she had to raise two children on her own. Her eldest son transports passengers to nearby towns. Her daughter helps out in the household. Aichurok has received vocational education. As a main source of income for her family, Aichurok is raising livestock, having launched this business 18 years ago by buying farm animals for 8,000 KGS. Thanks to Aichurok’s hard work, her farm now includes six dairy cows. Her monthly income is 10,000 KGS. In order to develop her business further, Aichurok has turned to the Bai Tushum microfinance institution in order to increase her cattle headcount by buying heifers. Aichurok plans to use the income from her loan for an additional expansion of livestock, and also plans to save for building a new house.
