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

A loan helped to pay for field work expenses to increase her yield, and to buy livestock to increase her income from breeding livestock.

Aizhan's story

Aizhan is 42 years old, married, and has 4 children. She received a high school education and is a hardworking, responsible, and goal-oriented woman by nature. She has been raising crops and livestock for 22 years to provide her family with their primary source of income. As a result of Aizhan's hard work and her husband's help, her farm currently consists of nine cows, a horse, and 3.34 hectares of land where she grows potatoes, barley, and clover. In order to further expand her farm, Aizhan has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a 111,000 KGS loan that she will use to pay for spring field work so she can increase her harvest, and she will also use a portion of the loan to buy livestock so she can increase her cattle headcount. The income generated by this loan will help Aizhan to increase the income her business makes and to save money to finish building her house.
