Raigul'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.

Raigul's story

Raigul is 57 years old and married, with grown children. She has a secondary specialized education, is industrious, goal-oriented, and enterprising by nature, is well familiar with agricultural techniques, and knows how to use resources for their intended purpose. Raigul has been raising livestock since 1999, and this is her family's main source of income. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach, she has been able to develop her farm, which now has seven cows. She also raises goats.

In order to develop her business further, Raigul has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 som (KGS), with which she will buy dairy cows, her goal being to increase her sales of organic milk and her cattle-breeding income. Raigul is planning to put the income generated by the loan into developing her farm yet further, piping her home for gas, and installing steam heat there.
