Gulmira's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase two purebred dairy cows in order to increase her milk sales.
Gulmira is 50, married, and a mother of five. Two of her children are school-age, and three are adults who live independently. Gulmira has a secondary education and has been raising livestock and planting crops for many years. Thanks to her hard work, she currently has six cows, two horses, and 30 sheep. She grows beans to sell on a 1.8 hectare plot of land. She signed a contract to supply organic milk to a local dairy manufacturer which processes the milk into different dairy products. This allows her to continuously invest in her agricultural business. Having learned that she can use her contract to secure a loan from Bai Tushum Bank, she applied for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS) to purchase two purebred dairy cows to increase her organic milk sales volume. The manufacturer’s payments for her milk will be directly transferred into Gulmira’s bank account, and loan payments will be automatically deducted. She is planning to use the earnings from the loan to invest in expanding her business further.
