A loan of $1,950 helped to buy calves.


Kulumkan's story

Kulumkan is a 67 year old widow who raised six children. For a long time after her husband's death, Kulumkan couldn't cope with the loss of someone so dear to her. But she had to raise her children and get them standing on their own feet, so she took the responsibility for her household and material well-being into her own hands. Kulumkan has a secondary level education and her family's main source of income is the animal husbandry business she started 22 years ago with the purchase of 8,000 som (KGS) worth of cattle. As a result of her hard work, today Kulumkan has three milk cows and two calves. Her monthly income amounts to 10,000 som (KGS). With an aim to further development of her business, Kulumkan applied to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan to buy calves. Kulumkan plans to invest the profits from the loan in further increasing the size of her her and to save money to buy a car.
