Sonunbu's story

Sonunbu is 54 years old, a widow, and the mother of five. Sonunbu has finished technical college. For many years has been working at the local school. As an additional source of income for her family, Sonunbu raises livestock, having first started in 1984. Thanks to Sonunbu’s hard work and dedication, her farm now includes five cows, 18 sheep and one horse. Her monthly income is 10,000 KGS. In order to develop her farm further, Sonunbu has applied to the Bai Tushum & Partners microfinance institution for a loan in the amount of 30,000 KGS to increase her livestock by buying a cow. This will allow her to increase her revenues from selling milk and dairy products. Sonunbu plans to use the resulting revenue for an additional increase of livestock. She would also like to save up for house renovations.
