Tamara's story

Tamara is 39 years old, married, and has four school-age children. Her husband helps her with the housework. They live as one big, happy family. Each member tries to contribute and help the family. Tamara is very hard-working and ambitious by nature. She has a high school education and earns the main income for her family raising livestock. She started her business in 1994 with 12,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, Tamara now has a dairy cow, a calf, a horse and four goats. She earns 10,000 som (KGS) per month. In order to continue expanding her farm, Tamara applied for a loan with the bank "Bai-Tushum" to purchase cows and a sheep. She plans to use the profits to invest in additional livestock and to save money to build a big house.
