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

A loan helped to buy cows to increase her income from breeding cattle.

Roza's story

Roza, age 56, is widowed and is the mother of four children. Roza has a secondary education. She is kind and compassionate by nature. She is engaged in animal husbandry and crop farming as the primary source of income for her family. Thanks to Roza's hard work, her farm currently has four cows, 15 sheep, and a two-hectare plot of land where she grows potatoes and alfalfa.

In order to further develop her business, Roza applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy cows in order to increase her income from raising livestock. Roza plans to invest profits from the loan in the expansion of her farm.
