Samara's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy four cows in order to increase her herd.
Samara is 32 years old, married, and has 5 children of school and pre-school age (the youngest is 1 year old). Samara has a specialized secondary education. For the past 14 years, Samara has been engaged in livestock and agriculture, which provides the main source of income for her family. She started this business with the sum of 1,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Samara's hard work, her farm now has 2 cows, 10 sheep, and 2 horses. On 0.47 hectares of land she grows perennial grasses for haymaking for the cattle. She sells milk on a daily basis. Her monthly income is around 8,500 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Samara approached the bank "Bai -Tushum" to ask for a loan in the amount of 150,000 som (KGS) for the preparation of 4 heifers to increase the number of livestock. She will invest the proceeds from the loan to further develop her business, building sheds for livestock.
