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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase her cattle headcount and sales of organic milk.

Tamara's story

Tamara has successfully repaid her previous loan and is very grateful to Kiva and to all who helped her with that financing. Tamara's farm presently consists of five cows, 30 sheep, three horses, and also a 1.85-hectare plot of land on which she grows beans. In order to develop her business yet further, Tamara has again turned to Bai Tushum Bank, this time for a loan of 200,000 som (KGS), to buy dairy cows, which will increase her sales of milk and her cattle headcount. Tamara is planning to put the income generated by the loan into the ongoing development of her business.
