Jazgul's story

Jazgul is 33 years old and married. She and her husband are raising four children. Jazgul has received secondary education. As a main source of income for her family, Jazgul raises livestock, having launched this business 14 years ago by buying livestock for 4,000 KGS. Thanks to Jazgul’s hard work, her farm now includes eight dairy cows, four mares, 29 sheep, and 30 goats. From March to November, Jazgul sells dairy product such as baked milk, “kurut” [a traditional dried dairy by-product], and kefir [fermented milk product]. Jazgul’s husband works on private construction sites in season. Jazgul’s monthly income is 14,000 KGS. IN order to develop her farm further, Jazgul has applied to the Bai Tushum microfinance institution for a loan in order to increase her livestock headcount by buying cows. She plans to use her resulting income for an additional increase of livestock. She also plans to save for her children’s further education.
