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

A loan helped to buy livestock to increase her income from breeding livestock.

Gulhida's story

Gulhida, age 22, is unmarried. She has a secondary education and is kind and compassionate by nature. Thanks to Gulhida's hard work, her farm currently has three cows and three horses. In order to develop her farm further, Gulhida applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to buy livestock in order to increase her income from animal husbandry. Gulhida plans to invest profits from the loan in the expansion of her farm and plans to save a part to renovate her home.
