A loan helped to buy additional sheep in order to increase her head count of livestock and grow her income.

Nurzhamal's story

Nurzhamal is 50 and widowed with three adult children. Her son has a job and her daughters are university students. She has a specialist high school education and has been working in animal husbandry since 1991. She is very responsible and hardworking. On her farm she currently has four cows, two calves, 24 sheep and one colt.

Since she needs to pay for her daughters' education and help her son and her income isn't nearly enough to do so, Nurzhamal has decided to develop her business. Therefore she has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 KGS to purchase sheep. She wants to put profits from the loan into further increasing her head count of livestock, which will allow her to improve her family's living conditions and to build a house for her son.
