Narkul's story

Narkul is 53 years old, married and is a mother to two children. Narkul has a secondary education. For the past 35 years, she has been practicing livestock breeding and crop farming. She has been able to develop her business and attract loyal customers to buy her milk. Thanks to her hard work and tenacity, Narkul currently has 1 cow with a calf and 1 horse on her farm. She also has land for crop farming. Narkul wants to further increase her number of cattle, as eco-friendly milk is in high-demand among local residents. In connection with this, she turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum" to request a loan for 50,000 som (KGS) to buy a dairy cow with a calf. Narkul plans to use the earnings from the loan to increase the size of her herd. She also will make major repairs on her house in the near future.
