Abtandil's story

Abtandil is 49 years old, married and has three children. Abtandil has higher education. As a main source of income for his family, he works with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation. Thanks to his persistent work, and the help of his wife, his farm currently has 10 cows, 35 sheep, four horses and 1.03 hectares of irrigated land. Here, he grows clover.

With an aim to further develop his business, Abtandil turned to the bank "Bai Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 150,000 som (KGS) to purchase dairy cows. He aims to increase his income from selling organic milk. The income from the loan helps Abtandil to purchase land for agricultural purposes, and to improve his family's material well-being.
