Rigina's story

Rigina is 21 years old, single and does not have any children. Rigina has a second education. She currently works as a hairstylist in a beauty salon. She lives with her parents. In the search for an additional source of income for her family, Rigina practices livestock breeding and crop farming. She started this business 3 years ago. Thanks to Rigina's hard work, she currently has 3 dairy cows, 1 calf, 10 sheep, and 1 horse with a foal. Her average monthly income is 15,000 som (KGS). For the further development of her business, Regina turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum." She is requesting a loan for 100,000 som (KGS) to buy a cow, calf, and hay for the cattle. A portion of the loan, specifically 15,000 som (KGS) will be put toward renovating her barn. Rigina plans to invest the earnings from the loan in the further acquisition of livestock. Rigina also dreams of saving money for her wedding and to open her own beauty salon.
