A loan of $925 helped to buy cows.


Kenzhekul's story

Kenzhekul is 49, married, and has three children. Her spouse helps her around the house. She has a vocational education and earns her family's main income raising farm animals. She started 31 years ago when she bought cattle for 3,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, she currently has a milk cow and ten sheep, along with a plot of land where she plants crops for personal use and for sale. She earns about 10,000 som (KGS) per month. In order to continue developing her farm, Kenzhekul applied for a loan with the bank "Bai-Tushum" to buy cows to fatten and resell for a profit. She plans to use the profits to invest in additional livestock and to save money to repair her house.
