A loan helped to buy cows.


Dinara's story

Dinara is 39 years old, married and raising 4 children together with her husband. Dinara has a secondary education. She works as a cook at a men's lyceum. Her husband seasonally does construction work. To provide the primary income for her family, Dinara is involved in animal husbandry and farming, having started 19 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, today her business contains 1 dairy cow, 1 calf, 10 sheep, and also 1.44 hectares of land, where she primarily grows beans and potatoes. They sell the resulting harvest to wholesale distributors. The monthly income amounts to 10,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Dinara requested a loan from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy cows in order to increase livestock headcount. Dinara plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money for her children's future education.
