A loan helped to pay for field work to increase her income from a good harvest of organic pepper.

Nazgul's story

Nazgul is 33 years old, married and has four children. Nazgul has a high school education. By character, she is purposeful and responsible. As a main source of income for her family, she has worked with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation for a period of 14 years. Thanks to Nazgul's persistent work, and the help of her husband, her farm currently has five cows, ten horses and a plot of land of 1.8 hectares on which she grows peppers.

With an aim to further develop her business, Nazgul turned to the bank "Bai Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 130,000 som (KGS) to pay for field work. She aims to increase her harvest of organic peppers. The income from the loan helps Nazgul to purchase land for agricultural purpose, and to give her children a quality education.
