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

A loan helped to pay for field work to increase her yield of organic beans.

Asel's story

Asel is 44 and married with three children. She has a high school education and is a purposeful and responsible person. She has been working in animal husbandry and agriculture for many years as the primary source of income for her family. Thanks to her hard work and help from her husband, she currently has two cows, 30 sheep and a horse on her farm as well as 5 hectares of land where she grows beans.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Asel has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 200,000 KGS to pay for field work to increase her yield of organic beans. Income from the loan will help her increase her business income and give her children a good education.
