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

A loan helped to buy livestock and increase her livestock-breeding income.

Tansuluu's story

The 37-year-old Tansuluu is married, with four children. She has a higher education, is familiar with agricultural techniques, and knows how to use resources for their intended purpose. She has been raising livestock since 2007, as her family's main source of income.

Thanks to Tansuluu's hard work, her farm presently consists of four cows, 15 sheep, and three horses. In order to develop her business further, she has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 som (KGS) to buy livestock with the aim of increasing her livestock-breeding income. Tansuluu is planning to put the income generated by the loan into the ongoing development of her farm.
