Upel's story

Upel is 57 years old, married and raising four children together with her husband. Her eldest son works at the regional electrical supplier. Her husband also works there, as a guard. The remaining children are of school age. Upel has secondary education.

As a source of income for her family, Upel works with livestock breeding, after having started 30 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 1,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Upel's persistent work, her farm currently has a horse, five bull-calves and 13 sheep. The monthly income is 12,000 som (KGS).

With an aim to further develop her business, Upel turned to the bank "Bai Tushum" for a loan to purchase cows to increase the number of cattle. Upel plans to invest the income from the loan in further increasing the number of livestock. She also plans to save money for the future education of her children.
