Oskonbu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cattle to increase her income from cattle breeding.

Oskonbu's story

Oskonbu is 63 years old. She is married and has 7 children. Oskonbu has secondary education and she sells fish on Bishkek-Osh highway.

She does cattle breeding and field husbandry to have additional income for her family.
Due to Oskonbu’s hard work and her husband’s help at this moment she has 5 cows, 10 sheep and 1.7 hectares of farmland. She grows corn and clover on the land.

Oskonbu decided to apply to Bai-Tushum Bank for a 150,000KGS loan to buy cattle in order to increase her proceeds from cattle breeding.

Oskonbu is planning to use the loan proceeds to increase her herd, improve her family’s living conditions and build a barn for cattle.
