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

A loan helped to buy livestock in order to increase her livestock headcount and to repair her house.

Zhanarhan's story

Zhanarhan has successfully paid off her loan. She is very grateful to Kiva Foundation and to everyone who helped her financially.

Currently, Zhanarhan has two cows and five sheep on her farm as well as 0.91 hectares of land where she grows garlic and corn.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Zhanarhan once again has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan, this time for 100,000 KGS, to buy livestock in order to increase her income from livestock breeding. She also plans to use a portion of the loan to renovate her house.

Profits from the loan will help Zhanarhan increase her family's welfare and, in the future, do home renovations.
