A loan of $1,850 helped to buy cows.

Marina's story

Marina is 38 years old, married, and together with her husband, is raising five children. Marina has a secondary-specialized education. Marina and her husband practice livestock breeding and crop farming. She started this business 6 years ago with an initial purchase of cattle in the amount of 35,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Marina's hard work, she currently has 2 milk cows on her farm, as well as a 1.44 hectare plot of land on which she primarily grows beans. The gathered harvest is sold to wholesale distributors. Her monthly income is 11,000 som (KGS). For the purpose of further developing her business, Marina 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. Marina plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. She also intends to save money to make home repairs.
