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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows in order to increase sales of organic milk.

Asmat's story

Asmat repaid her loan successfully, and she is grateful to Kiva and to everyone who helped her with financing. Asmat's farm currently has two cows, two horses, and a 0.5-hectare plot of land where she grows beans. In order to further develop her business, Asmat applied to Bai Tushum Bank again for a loan of 150,000 som (KGS) to buy dairy cows in order to increase the volume of organic milk she sells. She plans to invest profits from the loan in the expansion of her farm and plans to save a part to provide a good future for her children.
