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

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

Gulkaaki's story

Gulkaaki is 42 years old, married, and has 3 children. Gulkaaki has a secondary education, and by nature she is hardworking, ambitious, and adventurous. She knows the technology of agricultural businesses well and is able to use funds appropriately.

As the main source of income for her family, she has been working with livestock since 1995. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach to the business, she has been able to develop her farm to have 2 cows, 10 sheep, and a horse.

In order to further develop her farm, Gulkaaki applied to the bank "Bai-Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) to buy a dairy cow with the goal of increasing her sales of organic milk and income from livestock breeding. Gulkaaki plans to make home repairs with proceeds from the loan.
