Paridakan's story

Paridakan is 58 years old and widowed. She is the mother of three children, all of whom are grown and have families of their own. Paridakan already has many grandchildren. Her family is friendly and actively helps her manage her affairs. Paridakan has a secondary education. For 25 years she has worked in animal husbandry and agriculture, starting her business from scratch. Thanks to Paridakan's hard work, her business has grown to include: 4 cows, 20 sheep, and 1.20 hectares of land, on which Paridakan grows clover and barley. Her family's monthly income is about 20,000 KGS. Income from her business, as well as saved funds, allowed Paridakan to begin building a house. However, she lacks the money to complete the project. For this reason, Paridakan turned to the bank "Bai-Tushum" for a loan of 50,000 KGS to purchase, cement, planks, and plastic windows, which will help her save money on heating in the future. She plans to put her future savings towards increasing her number of cattle with further fattening and reselling.
