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

A loan helped to buy livestock to increase her livestock headcount.

Turdakan's story

Turdakan successfully repaid her loan and is very grateful to the Kiva fund and to all who helped her with financing. Turdakan currently has 6 cows and 25 sheep on her farm, as well as 2.48 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows beans.

To further develop her business, Turdakan has again applied to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 160,000 som (KGS) to buy livestock to increase her income from raising livestock. With the income from the loan, Turdakan plans to invest in further developing her farm by increasing her livestock headcount and a part toward improving the living conditions of her family.
