Khadiyakhon's story

Khadiyakhon is 55 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising three children. Khadiyakhon has a secondary education. Khadiyakhon and her husband practice livestock breeding and crop farming. She started this business 19 years ago, with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Khadiyakhon's hard work, she currently has 1 milk cow on her farm as well as a 0.45 hectare plot of land on which she mainly grows cotton. Her monthly income is 10,000 som (KGS). The gathered harvest is sold to wholesale distributors. For the purpose of further developing her business, Khadiyakhon turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum." She is requesting a loan to buy cows to increase the size of her herd. After purchasing the cattle, they will be located on her farm. In the summer, they will be under the care of a shepherd. Khadiyakhon plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money to build a new shed for her cattle.
