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

A loan helped to purchase cattle to increase her income from cattle breeding.

Gulkaiyr's story

Gulkaiyr is 35 years old, married and has 2 children. She has a high school education and knows farming technology well and how to invest properly. For many years, the main source of income for her family has been from raising livestock. Thanks to her hard work, Gulkaiyr has on her farm today 2 cows, 33 sheep, 2 horses and a .44 hectare plot of irrigated land on which she grows potatoes and apples.

In order to further develop her farm, Gulkaiyr has turned to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 150,000 som (KGS) to purchase cattle to increase her income from cattle breeding. With the income from the loan, Gulkaiyr plans to invest in further developing her farm by increasing her cattle headcount.
