A loan of $1,975 helped buy cows.


Indira's story

Indira is 41, married and raising 3 sons with her husband. Her two oldest sons work in Moscow and send money back home to their parents in Kyrgyzstan every month. Indira's husband works in traffic enforcement, while she herself tends to their home and raises livestock for a living. She has the equivalent of a high school education, and first started raising livestock nearly 23 years ago with 5,000 som worth of animals. Thanks to her persistence, she currently has 2 dairy cows, 2 horses, 3 bull calves and 18 sheep, while her monthly income is nearly 15,000 som. To further develop her farm, Indira is seeking a loan from Bai Tushum and Partners to buy some cows. She plans on setting aside any extra money that the loan will allow her to make to buy a new car for her family.
