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

A loan helped to buy pedigree cattle to increase her cattle-breeding income.

Elgiza's story

The 29-year-old Elgiza is married, with two children. She has a secondary education, is familiar with agricultural technology, and knows how to use resources for their intended purpose. She has been raising livestock since 2009, and this her family's main source of income. Thanks to Elgiza's hard work, her farm presently consists of five cows and 22 sheep.

In order to develop her business further, Elgiza has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy pedigree cattle, her goal being to increase her cattle-breeding income. Eligiza is planning to put the income generated by the loan into developing her farm yet further and doing some home repair and renovation.
