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

A loan helped to buy fertilizers to increase her income from a good crop of organic beans.

Begaiym's story

Begaiym repaid her loan successfully, having used the funds as intended. She is very grateful to Kiva and to everyone who helped her with financing. Begaiym's farm currently has two cows and 30 sheep. Begaiym grows perennial grasses and beans to sell on a four-hectare parcel of land, and she grows vegetables in her own garden. Begaiym applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 30,000 som (KGS) to buy fertilizers, with the goal of making a profit from selling organic beans. She plans to invest profits from the loan in the further expansion of her business.
