A loan helped to buy cattle to increase her income from livestock breeding.

Aigul's story

Aigul is 42 years old, married, and has 2 children. Aigul has a higher education. She knows well agricultural technologies and is able to invest as intended. As the main income for her family, she has been rearing livestock since 2012. Thanks to her hard work, Aigul has 5 cows and 10 sheep on her farm today. To further develop her farm, Aigul applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 100,000 KGS to purchase livestock, in order to increase income from rearing livestock. Aigul plans to invest the loan income in the further development of her farm by increasing the number of livestock.
