Urunisa's story

Urunisa is 64 years old, widowed, and has an adult son who actively helps her farm. Urunisa has a high school education, and is the main breadwinner for her family through her work in livestock, which she began 16 years ago, with a purchase of one cattle for 10,000 som (KGS). Determination and hard work have allowed Urunisa to develop her farm to have two dairy cows. The monthly income is 10,000 com (KGS). Urunisa joined the group "Bereke" with two other people. As a result, there are three of them. Urunisa is the leader of the group. In order to develop their economy, Urunisa asked the bank "Bai-Tushum" for a loan to purchase sheep to increase their livestock. With the income from the credit Urunisa plans to invest in further increasing the amount of domestic animals, and plans to save enough to improve conditions for the livestock.
