A loan helped to buy fertilizers in order to increase organic beans yield.

Zahira's story

Zahira is 40 years old, married and has four children. Zahira has secondary education and is goal-oriented, hard-working and responsible woman by nature.

Animal husbandry and crop farming have been her family's primary source of income since 1998. Thanks to Zahira's hard work and her husband's and childrens' help with the farm, her farm currently has 4 cows, 16 sheep, and a horse, as well as 2,8 hectares of land where she grows organic beans.

With the goal to develop her business further, Zahira applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 80,000 som (KGS) to buy fertilizers to increase her organic beans yield. Zahira plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increase of her livestock headcount and use a part of the earnings to repair her house.
