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

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

Zeinep's story

Zeinep is a 43 year old widow, and has 3 children. Zeinep has a secondary level education. She knows agriculture technology and how to invest purposefully.

As the main source of income for her family, she has been involved in animal husbandry since 2014. Thanks to the hard work of Zeinep, her farm today has 6 cows, 50 sheep, 4 horses and 0.75 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows potatoes.

In order to further develop her farm, Zeinep turned to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 150,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of livestock, in order to increase her income from livestock breeding. Zeinep plans to invest the profits from the loan in further developing her farm and preparing her children for school, specifically by buying her children clothes and school supplies.
