Baktygul's story

Baktygul is 36 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising four children. Baktygul has a secondary education. As the main source of income for her family, she practices livestock breeding and crop farming. She started this business 10 years ago with 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Baktygul's hard work, she currently has 5 milk cows on her farm, as well as a 1.30 hectare plot of land on which she annually grows cucumbers, tomatoes, and melons for personal consumption and sale. Her monthly cumulative income is 10,000 som (KGS). For the purpose of further developing her business, Baktygul turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum." She is requesting a loan to buy melon, cucumber and tomato seeds for sowing. Baktygul is determined to receive a good harvest which will fundamentally increase her family's capital. Baktygul plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money to buy furniture.
