Farida's story

Farida is 49 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising five children. Farida has a secondary education. As the main source of income for her family, Farida practices livestock breeding and crop farming. She started this business 30 years ago with 1,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Farida's hard work, she currently has 1 milk cow on her farm, as well as a 1.82 hectare plot of land on which she annually grows tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, cabbage, melons and watermelons for personal consumption and sale. She also has a hothouse on the territory surrounding her home. Her monthly income is 10,000 som (KGS). For the purpose of further developing her business, Farida turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum." She is requesting a loan to buy fertilizers to cultivate her land, as well as to pay hired workers to cultivate and till her land. Farida plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money for her children's education.
