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

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

Zoya's story

Zoya is 64 years old, married, and has six children. Zoya has a secondary education. She is familiar with agricultural technology and knows how to invest as needed. She has been involved in animal husbandry as the family’s primary source of income since 1990.

Thanks to Zoya’s hard work, her farm now has two cows, eight sheep, two horses, and 1.92 hectares of irrigated land where she grows clover. In order to further develop her farm, Zoya has applied to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 150,000 KGS to purchase cattle and increase her revenue from cattle breeding. With the revenue from her loan, Zoya plans to invest in further developing her farm.
