Aiyda's story

Aiyda is 38 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising four children. Aiyda has a secondary-specialized education. She graduated from a technical college with a degree as a chef. She began her professional career in secondary school, then she got married, but she continued to work. Aiyda is very responsible, gregarious and cheerful by nature. Aiyda and her husband practice livestock breeding and crop farming. They started this business 20 years ago, with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Aiyda's hard work, she currently has 2 milk cows and 2 horses on her farm. Her monthly income is 16,000 som (KGS) from the sale of milk, as well as cultivating a 2.0 hectare plot of land on which she mainly grows beans and potatoes. The received harvest is sold to wholesale distributors. For the purpose of further developing her business, Aiyda turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum." She is requesting a loan to buy cows to increase the size of her herd. After the purchase of the cattle, they will be located on their own farm. In the summer, they will be under the care of a shepherd. Aiyda plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money for her children's university educations.
