Dinara's story

Dinara is 62 years old, a widow and has 3 children. She has higher education and works as a librarian at a local school. She knows farming technology well and how to invest properly. Since 1999, an additional source of income for her family has been from raising livestock. Thanks to her hard work, Dinara has on her farm today 3 cows, 10 sheep and 2 horses, as well .36 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows alfalfa.

In order to further develop her farm, Dinara has turned to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 60,000 som (KGS) to build a barn and buy livestock to increase her income from breeding livestock. With the income from the loan, Dinara plans to invest in the further development of her farm and to save money to build a house.
