Uulzhan's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase her cattle headcount and sales of organic milk.

Uulzhan's story

Uulzhan is 31 years old, married and has 4 children. She has high school education. She is a hard-working, goal-oriented and entrepreneurial person. She knows farming techniques very well and is able to invest resources effectively.

Uulzhan has been rearing livestock since 2000, and this is her family's primary source of income. Through her hard work and responsible approach to business, she managed to raise 4 cows. She also has 2.59 hectares of land where she grows beans.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Uulzhan applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 80,000 som (KGS) to buy dairy cows in order to increase her income from cattle breeding and sales of organic milk. Uulzhan plans to reinvest the earnings from the loan back into her farm.
