Taalaykan's story

Taalaykan is 50 years old, married and together with her husband, is raising three sons. All of her children are working abroad in Russia. Every month, they send a portion of their salaries to their parents in Kyrgyzstan. Taalaykan has a secondary-specialized education with a degree in pharmacology. She work in a pharmacy affiliated with an outpatient clinic. Her husband is a taxi driver and frequently drives passengers to their destinations. As an additional source of income for their family, Taalaykan and her husband practice livestock breeding and crop farming. They started this business 19 years ago with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Taalaykan's hard work, she currently has 5 dairy cows, 18 sheep, 1 goat, 6 mares and 7 calves on her farm, as well as a 1.45 hectare plot of land on which she grows clover and corn for sale. The farming is very well done. The feed for the animals has already been procured. Their monthly earnings are 12,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her farm, Taalaykan turned to Microcredit Bank "Bai Tushum and Partners." She is requesting a loan to buy calves to increase the size of her herd. Taalaykan plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money to build a new barn for her cattle.
