Elmira's story

Elmira is 49, married, and has a son. Elmira has a secondary special education. As the main income for her family, she has been engaged in animal husbandry and fieldwork since 2007. Thanks to the hard work of Elmira, her husband, and her son, today there are 2 cows and 5 sheep on her farm. In order to further develop her business, Elmira applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 KGS to purchase a cow in order to increase milk yield and increase the number of her livestock. The loan will help Elmira repair her house.
