Tynarbek's story

Tynarbek is 26 years old, a bachelor, and lives with his parents. Tynarbek has a high school education, and as the primary source of income for his family he farms and raises livestock, which he started 8 years ago with 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to his tireless work Tynarbek now owns two milk cows, two sheep, and a barn near the house, and also a plot of land where he grows watermelon, cotton, and corn each year for family use and sale. His total monthly income is 9,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop his business Tynarbek contacted the Bai Tushum bank for a loan to buy high quality melon, cotton, and corn seeds for planting, and fertilizer for the soil. Tynarbek expects to have a good harvest, which will increase the family's capital. He plans to invest earnings from use of the loan into expanding his livestock herd, and also plans to save for purchase of a transport vehicle.
